Quick Study: Americans Say Recession Has Changed Outlook on Life; Mobile Maps Big, While Geosocial Activity Remains Small


â–¶ Post-Recession Americans Redefine the American Dream: Although the vast majority of Americans say the Great Recession changed their outlook on life, nearly three-quarters (74%) of respondents of a study by communications agency Solomon McCown & Company say they feel they have achieved the American Dream or are on their way to doing so. The poll of 1,009 adults conducted by Anderson Robbins Research shows Americans remain worried, but are more thrifty and determined. They have redefined the American Dream to place more importance on achieving softer goals—a happy marriage, a healthy retirement and environmentally responsible living. Study highlights include: • 24% of Americans report that their household has “mostly recovered” from the impact of the recession; 41% say they “still have a ways to go”; and 14% say they “might not ever fully recover.” • A majority (56%) of those who feel they might not ever recover said they have already achieved the American Dream or are on their way to achieving it.
