Remaining Confident

African-Americans feel less uncertain (22 percent compared to 31 percent of general U.S. population), less anxious (18 percent compared to 28 percent) and less intim­idated (5 percent compared to 10 percent) about making financial decisions. College graduates, those with annual income of $75,000 or more, and those who believe the recession is over have greater financial confidence, as well as those with a financial adviser expressed the highest levels of confidence, according to the report.
