Financial wellbeing is the extent to which someone is able to meet all their current commitments and needs comfortably and has the financial resilience to maintain this in the future. The ANZ Roy Morgan Financial Wellbeing Indicator (FWBI) is reported as a 12-month moving average, with regular updates showing the changes in aspects of financial wellbeing across locations and for a range of segments in the community.

The FWBI is a useful measure of how people are faring in their financial lives in Australia over time.

This update examines how financial wellbeing changed in the December quarter of 2023 and year-on-year, comparing the December 2023 results with those of September 2023 and December 2022. While the financial wellbeing of Australians declined further in the December quarter of 2023, the quarterly decline was the smallest since March 2022. Indeed, the spot results show some improvement since June 2023 coinciding with the RBA (November excepted) leaving rates on hold during the September and December 2023 quarters.

Margin of Error

The margin of error to be allowed for in any estimate depends mainly on the number of interviews on which it is based. Margin of error gives indications of the likely range within which estimates would be 95% likely to fall, expressed as the number of percentage points above or below the actual estimate. Allowance for design effects (such as stratification and weighting) should be made as appropriate.
