Inflation, Interest Rates and Economic Concerns
- 81% of Canadians and 85% of Americans say that inflation is a very or somewhat serious problem for their household. The rising cost of groceries and gasoline is being felt most acutely.
- Canadians and Americans have a pessimistic outlook for the future: the majority think inflation, interest rates and gas prices will increase six months from now.
- The top actions Canadians and Americans have taken or plan to take due to rising inflation are
- Reducing food waste to make their money go further (86% of Canadians, 75% of Americans).
- Buying less expensive items at the grocery store (83% of Canadians, 72% of Americans)
- Spending less on household items (76% of Canadians, 68% of Americans).
- Eating less often at restaurants or limiting take-out (75% of Canadians, 67% of Americans), which doesn’t bode well for a sector still trying to recover post-pandemic.
This web survey was conducted from March 11 to 13, 2022 with 1,515 Canadians and 1,002 Americans, 18 years of age or older, randomly recruited from LEO’s online panel.
