DCCA staff members Maximilian D. Schmeiser, David E. Buchholz, Alexandra M. Brown, Matthew B. Gross, Jeff H. Larrimore, Ellen A. Merry, Barbara J. Robles, and Logan M. Thomas prepared this report. Federal Reserve staff members Anna Alvarez Boyd, Mario Arthur-Bentil, Andrea Brachtesende, Ray Boshara, William Emmons, Allen Fishbein, Arturo Gonzalez, Joanne Hsu, Arthur Kennickell, Geng Li, Alejandra Lopez-Fernandini, Kevin Moore, Caio Peixoto, Tonda Price, John Sabelhaus, Claudia Sahm, and Dick Todd provided valuable comments and feedback on the design of the survey and drafting of this report. The authors would also like to thank Dee Warmath and Michael Collins at the University of Wisconsin, Don Dillman at Washington State University, and Thomas Shapiro at Brandeis University for their insights.
