A survey by the American Psychiatric Association finds that Americans are increasingly troubled by financial anxiety. Two-thirds of respondents admitted being extremely or somewhat anxious about paying bills or expenses. The survey also discovered that women are more anxious than men when it comes to money. Fifty-seven percent of females 18 to 49 years of age reported being distressed over money matters this year. Experts say stagnant wages, rising consumer debt, and high housing costs could be the source of the increased levels of anxiety.
