Sara Collins of consumer finance site NerdWallet recently notified me of a new study they completed. After analyzing data for the nation's largest metro areas to find the highest average credit score, they found that out of 143 places Minneapolis ranked #1 as the most financially responsible place in the country.
Their analysis also produced these findings:
• Of the top ten places with the highest average credit scores, eight are in the Midwest, including four metros in Wisconsin.
• Of the ten places with the lowest average credit scores, eight are in the South.
