Financial Literacy Survey 2010
Other Household Survey
The Financial Literacy survey is part of a World Bank Financial Governance/Consumer Protection in Financial Services Program in ECCU5 Countries. The Program aims to improve the levels of consumer protection and financial literacy in these countries—and thereby strengthen consumer confidence in the financial sectors. To this end the World Bank commissioned to the Alpha Research a baseline national representative survey. The objective of the study is to assess the level of financial literacy and consumer confidence of households and to outline the peculiarities in different target groups prior to the implementation of the action plan for increasing the financial literacy of the general population and in particular of the lowincome groups.
