In another example of the steps that American workers are taking to save money and reduce expenses, two-thirds say they plan to take a vacation this summer but will not be traveling, according to the latest poll by LifeCare®, Inc., a leading provider of health and productivity solutions to employers nationwide. Here are the full results of the poll, which was conducted during the month of June on LifeCare's private web site:
Are you replacing your summer vacation with a "stay-cation" this year?
- Yes. I am taking time off and staying home – 66%
- No. I plan to take a summer vacation away from home – 22%
- No. I am not taking any time off – 12%

Burki. "We've also answered quite a few calls asking our specialists to help plan inexpensive trips but that number is certainly down a bit from past years."
