Most Americans are only slightly more worried about what the millennium bug will do to nuclear power plants than the effect it may have on their tax returns.
A survey of about 1,000 US citizens has revealed that the potential mix up or deletion of tax records ranks just behind the potential malfunctioning of nuclear power plants on a list of fears expressed about Year 2000.
The survey also showed that fears of the risks to personal and business records were equal to concerns about death from biomedical device failure and power blackouts.
Slightly lower ranking worries were over bank machine cards not working, military defence vulnerability, plane crashes due to instrument failure, stock market crashes and food and oil shortages.
To the surprise of many, no doubt, fear of disruption at work was bottom of the list.
