September 13, 2012 1:50 pm

Once in a while, we spot a stat that makes us go “Really?” – we spotted one such stat today:

“About 8.2% of U.S. households, or nearly 10 million, lack a bank account, according to survey results released Wednesday by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. That’s up from 7.7%, or about 9 million households, in 2009.

Most commonly, households reported that they don’t have a bank account because they don’t have enough money to open and fund one, with 33% of respondents saying this is the case.”
