The twofold purpose of this quantitative, inferential-correlation study was primarily to measure for levels of retirement knowledge resulting from economic-specific high school curriculum in Phoenix/Maricopa County, Arizona, and secondarily to measure the association between student interest in economics and the established levels of retirement knowledge through statistical significance. Forty sample members, taken from a population of spring 2009 high school graduates from Phoenix/Maricopa County, Arizona, disclosed their comprehension of retirement knowledge. A one-sample t-test revealed a significant difference between the students’ mean percentage on a typical retirement knowledge test and a 70% mastery criterion ( p <.001). Meanwhile, Pearson’s product moment correlation demonstrated no significant relationship between student interest in economics and retirement knowledge within the sample.
