2021's Cities with the Least Sustainable Credit Card Debt

From Wallet Hub, Jan 4, 2021

Americans started 2020 with more than $1 trillion in outstanding credit card balances, but the good news is that we are on pace to begin 2021 in slightly better shape. The first two quarters of 2020 saw the highest credit-card debt paydown in decades, due in large part to the stimulus in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. WalletHub projects we’ll end the year with a small overall reduction in credit-card debt, but there will still be a mountain of debt left in 2021.

Some people are in a better position than others when it comes to credit-card debt. In order to determine where Americans have accumulated the most and least sustainable credit-card debts, WalletHub drew upon TransUnion credit data to calculate the cost and time required to pay off the median card balances of more than 2,500 U.S. cities.
