    Notes: Three-quarters of American Millennials (18-34) feel that they are financially responsible and generally do not spend beyond their means, according to results from an Ipsos and Wells Fargo survey. However, Millennials are less likely than adults ages 55 and older (87%) to feel financially responsible, and are about twice as likely to say they tend to spend their money and not think twice about it (36% vs. 19%).
