Every month, we conduct a survey of North Americans to explore their views on the economy, finances, and their respective governments. This month, our survey was conducted between November 24 and 26, 2023.

Our North American Tracker gives you a glimpse of U.S. residents’ perspectives. It provides valuable insights that allow you to adapt to their shifting behaviors and establish a meaningful connection.

The survey explores U.S. residents’ perspectives on economic uncertainty, household finances, and U.S. politics.
