Over half of Cardiff citizens said that they are very or fairly concerned with being able to afford a decent standard of living. People in Cardiff East and South West were much more concerned than those living in Cardiff North, as were disabled people and those from minority ethnic backgrounds.

Nearly one in five said that their finances might affect their well-being over the next five years. As well as the cost of child care, being able to afford utility bills, healthy food and the affordability of housing were particular concerns.
