Did you know that nearly 50% of Missourians aged 18-34 had student loan debt at the end of 2015, compared to 36% at the same time in 2005? More youth sought higher education over the past decade as the increase in debt shows. Several Federal Reserve Banks have created a new tool to study and compare consumer debt (auto, student, mortgage, etc.) levels by state, metro, and non-metro areas. You can also see debt levels by Low/Moderate Income Neighborhoods, and Age Groups.
