Detecting Decline in Decision-Making Abilities: Early Screening Assessment
Will the data collected from our Early Screening Assessment (ESA) mirror published research that supports the notion of a "peak financial age" for financial decision-making abilities?
"Did you know that age affects cognition, and that cognition affects decision-making abilities? Become a research participant to help the Financial Security & Cognitive Health Initiative learn more about the relationship between our financial and cognitive health.
We’re studying how financial decision-making (FDM) skills may change over the life course, and how to identity patterns of impaired FDM abilities. The purpose of this study is to administer our Early Screening Assessment (ESA) that detects impaired FDM to assess its reliability and validity for public use.
This exploratory research aims to fill a significant gap that will benefit the lives of adults and older adults into the future. Research participants will complete one online survey designed to take 15 minutes or less. Eligibility requirements include: 1) being age 50 or older, 2) having access to the internet (via computer or smartphone), and 3) the ability to answer survey questions without help from anyone else."
