Poll: New Year’s Resolutions 2019

Three out of four Americans are making resolutions for the new year, according to a recent survey conducted by Accelerant Research, and the most popular resolutions for this year are health-related.  Of those who are making resolutions, 61% plan to exercise more, 50% wish to lose weight, and 57% plan to eat healthier.  Other popular resolutions are improving finances (48%), having a more positive attitude (45%), getting organized (37%), traveling (33%) and spending more time with family (33%).

Americans who are making New Year's resolutions are also optimistic about sticking to them, with over four out of five (84%) planning to do so.  Additionally, New Year's resolutions are more popular among younger age groups.  Gen Z and Millennials are far more likely to make resolutions than Gen Xers and Boomers.

Using its proprietary Agora USA consumer insights panel, Accelerant Research conducted the New Year’s Resolution survey among a demographically representative sample of 2,620 Americans 18 years of age or older.  For more information about this study, please contact Accelerant Research at
