Credit Cornerstone Weekly Credit Trends and Data Intelligence
Consumer credit varies by metro area
January 27, 2011

From Q3 2009 to Q4 2010, the percentage of consumers in the VantageScore® A tier declined by 2.0 percent nationally, from 15.1 percent to 14.8 percent. Interestingly, a number of U.S. metropolitan areas had distinctly large declines, like Miami, Fla., at 5.1 percent and Detroit, Mich., at 5.6 percent. Meanwhile, some metropolitan statistical areas — such as Dallas–Fort Worth, Texas, at 0.9 percent, and Denver, Colo., at 1.1 percent — only saw small declines in the proportion of this lowest–risk consumer segment. This simple metric highlights the distinct differences in how economic and credit environments vary across the nation.
