The providers of CareOne Debt Relief Services® are in a unique position to hear from Americans all over the country and learn about the economic obstacles they face on a daily basis. And although there are many signs that things are improving, we know that people still struggle in towns and cities all over the country, cities like Oakland, CA.
While the unemployment rate in Oakland (7.5% as of November 2012) is on par with the national average1 there are significant differences seen in other economic indicators that show many Oakland residents are facing tough financial challenges. For example, 19.6% of Oaklanders are living in poverty, which is 36% higher than the state average2. On top of that, the U.S Census reports that the average median household income is 17% lower than the California state. Our own internal data suggests that many residents may need debt help. These people are carrying large amounts of unsecured debt, on average over $12,000, and may be thinking about debt consolidation options in Oakland, CA, without the need for a loan.
