<<While 27% is way below some of the others here, I am pretty happy with it and generally comfortable with our goal of FIRE just before age 50. My wife and I are now 38 and have three young kids, ages 7, 8 & 10.

The ability and inclination of people to save varies widely. Since a majority of people have saved little or nothing, I'd say 27% is great!
