A study released in October 2011 for the S&P/Experian Consumer Credit Default Indices showed that first mortgage default rates rose to 2.08 percent in October from September’s 1.99 percent. Auto loans, second mortgages and bank cards all saw drops in their default rates.
Looking at regions, Chicago saw the largest default rate increase, moving from 2.47 percent to 2.64 percent. Miami fell the most, to 4.16 percent, well below the near 19 percent default rate it had a little more than two years ago.
