VISUALIZING AMERICA’S STUDENT DEBT BY STATE #INFOGRAPHIC


The interactive map is based on student debt credit reports from the 2013 American Community Survey, compiled using experience and earnings information. Researchers used experiential data in zip codes to assess the countrywide average credit balance and crime rate. This helps the resulting choroplethal maps to identify sharp discrepancies between U.S. states as well as metropolitan area variations in conjunction with ACS demographic information.

The data shows a negative correlation between median income and delinquency while the association between income and average credit balance seems positive. That is, richer individuals tend to have larger loan balances across the U.S. but tend to generate payments for such loans more efficiently, while poorer borrowers are more likely to bring down loans, but are also more likely to default on loans.
