Household Debt Grows for the Third Consecutive Quarter

“The New York Fed released its Quarterly Report on Household Debt and Credit for the first quarter of 2014, which shows a $129 billion increase in overall household debt from the previous period. Delinquency rates continued to improve, with the overall ninety-plus day delinquency rate falling to 4.8 percent, the lowest it has been since mid-2008. The Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s Household Debt and Credit Report provides a quarterly snapshot of household trends in borrowing and indebtedness, including data about mortgages, student loans, credit cards, auto loans and delinquencies. The report aims to help community groups, small businesses, state and local governments and the public to better understand, monitor and respond to trends in borrowing and indebtedness at the household level.”
