Ninety-three percent of American households suffered at least one "substantial economic shock" in the 18-month period from March 2008 to September 2009, according to this report from the Rockefeller Foundation and Yale University. It draws on two surveys fielded in the spring and fall of 2009 and its results are a companion to the national Economic Security Index, which has shown that economic insecurity has worsened since the mid-1980s.
