Mortgage Rates and Inflation
- If mortgage rates went up by 1%, 13% of Canadians and 10% of Americans who have a mortgage would either face a significant financial burden, have to consider selling their home or have to sell their home. These figures balloon if rates were to increase by 3%.
- The proportion of Canadians (85%) and Americans (88%) who indicate that inflation is a serious problem for their household has increased since our last survey published on March 17, 2022.
- The top actions Canadians and Americans have taken due to rising inflation over the past few months are:
- Buying less expensive items at the grocery store (65% of Canadians, 49% of Americans)
- Eating at restaurants or ordering take-out less often (53% of Canadians, 41% of Americans)
- Reducing food waste to make their money go further (46% of Canadians, 40% of Americans)
This web survey was conducted from May 6 to 8, 2022 with 1,534 Canadians and 1,003 Americans, 18 years of age or older, randomly recruited from LEO’s online panel.
