Credit Index

National Credit Scores
A City-Level Dashboard
Our dashboard and mapping provides a unique snapshot of community financial health as measured by average credit scores. Communities with financial security are marked by above average credit scores. Credit scores are important because they affect residents’ ability to borrow, the likelihood they can be resilient during difficult times, and their ability to pursue opportunity (e.g. purchase a home). Understanding these data can help inform policy, program and service offerings, and can provide residents a greater understanding of their specific community’s financial health.
