Increase in
Education Loans

The Survey of Consumer Finances asked American households about their loans since 1989.

The percent of American families with education loans has increased over time, regardless of most socio-demographic characteristics. (Age, occupation, and employment status refer to the head of household. Race/ethnicity are for the respondent. All other variables are measured at the household-family level.)
