78% of parents are spending less money on vacations this year because of inflation
These are just some of the findings from research conducted by Pollara on a national June survey. These figures show that, even though inflation rates have eased, Canadians are still feeling inflation. Moreover, the higher interest rates introduced to fight inflation are causing other ripple effects throughout the economy.
Pollara’s new quarterly syndicated study, Inflation Pressure Points, explores how economic perceptions are evolving and the behavioural impacts this new economic outlook is having on investment and consumer habits in various sectors.
Each wave of this study will feature deep dives on topics such as interest rates, financial services, and travel. Subscribers will also receive 2 custom questions each wave, to understand more directly how your organization and the issues you deal with are being impacted by the public’s rapidly shifting economic outlook.
