Abstract: This was an exploratory study among 105 low-income families in a Turnkey III housing project in Charlotte, North Carolina for factors influencing the use of economic resources and thereby contributing to or blocking their economic well-being. Its objectives were: (1) to identify specific factors related to families' use of economic resources: values, goals, success in goal achievement, behavior patterns in procuring and using economic resources, financial problems, and families' satisfaction with life style; and (2) to examine relationships among those factors. Data were collected from homemakers by personal interview and examined by frequency counts, percentages, Chi-square, t-test, correlation, and multiple regression analyses. A significance level at the .05 critical value was accepted for the study.
