Accounting For the Role of Habit in Regular Saving

What is the relationship between habit and saving? Using the self-report habit index (Verplanken and Orbell 2003) and applying it to saving, survey data were collected to (1) validate the role of habits in regular savings; (2) test whether participation in a savings program aids in the formation of savings habits; and (3) examine the role of habits in the perception of financial strain, to measure the effects of habit on a mental construct.
