In response to many requests for the data we used to create the ratio, we’re introducing the borrowing to credential ratio data file (.xls). It’s available now on our website for anyone to download (look under “additional materials”).
What can you find in the data file? For one, you can figure out how well your state’s public institutions are doing in keeping debt levels low and producing degrees. For example, take a look at the map below from our recent report – it turns out that state financial aid and funding policies matter to keeping student debt levels in check.
