Google Consumer Survey for the Los Angeles-based GOBankingRates.com, which publishes the best personal deposit interest rates to a million subscribers each week, found that 62 percent of Americans do not have $1,000 in savings. About 13 percent have less than $1,000; 9 percent the bare minimum to keep the account open; 28 percent have $0 in a savings account; and 21 percent do not have any savings at all.
For those Americans with the discipline or capability to save at least $1,000, about 10 percent have between $1,000 and $4,999; 5 percent have between $5,000 and $9,999; and only 14 percent have more than $10,000.
