MADISON, Wis. (1/9/14)--Research from the Credit Union National Association hit the money--the Money section of USA Today, that is--for a "USA Snapshot."

Wednesday's print edition of the national publication featured content from CUNA's mobile payment survey. Titled "Youngest adults are not the top users of mobile payments," the graphic broke down the age groups.
 
The youngest age group of 18-29 came in at 58%--slightly below the 60% of the 30- to 44-year-old age range--for using mobile payments. The 45-60 range reported 48% usage, and 24% of those older than 61 said they used mobile payments.
 
CUNA's Mobile Payments Survey polled 1,046 people via the Internet from a population of mobile phone users. The October survey revealed that more than half of smartphone users make payments with their device. Security is the biggest concern for 77.7% of those users (News Now 10/30/13).
 
In September, USA TODAY featured findings from CUNA's Women's Financial Survey as the "USA Snapshot" on the front page of its Money section. The national publication also tweeted the content and graphic later that month (News Now 9/27/13).
