Top 10 Best States for Student Loan Borrowers – Video

There is a best and worst of everything: sandwiches, football teams, property value. WalletHub just put out an article ranking the best and worst states for student debt. They used nine metrics to track these states ranging from average student debt, the unemployment rate for people aged 25-34, percentage of students of past-due loan balances, availability of jobs for recent grads, and more.

Jill Gonzalez, a WalletHub analyst who led the charge on the ranking of all 50 states and the District of Columbia, said “No clear regional ties here. It wasn’t like the best and worst states were concentrated on the coasts or in the South.” The only trend that did seem to appear was that “Generally if a state did really well in one category, it did well in others.” Gonzalez said.
