Credit Score Stress Test: Credit Score Strength by State

Banks just passed a stress test, so what about the hardworking folks who bailed them out? Which states have a populace with a healthy credit score (who are able to use that to their advantage to get better financing deals) and which states have people who still need a little help along the way? Simply analyzing a state’s average credit score tells you less about the actual lay of the land.

To help present a clearer picture, Credit Sesame analyzed the credit score ranges of consumers across the United States, looking at which states had the most amount of people falling between the excellent and good range and which states had the most with poor and very poor credit scores.
