According to the Kentucky Health Issues Poll, six in ten adult Kentuckians think the next generation will be worse off financially than the current generation.

The poll also addressed health comparisons between generations, and found that four in ten Kentuckians believe that next generation will be less-healthy than the current generation.

“It is a cornerstone of the American Dream that, if we work hard, we will get ahead and be better off than our parents were,” said Dr. Susan Zepeda, President/CEO of the Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky. “Our polling suggests that optimism for a better future may be slipping away.”

The poll also found that the current generation of Kentuckians believe that their parents were better off financially and were healthier than they are.

The poll was conducted from September 2012-October 2012.
