As the 16th largest city in the United States, Columbus, Ohio is home to over 797,000 residents representing numerous backgrounds, ethnicities, and political affiliations. It is this type of diversity that has made Ohio’s capital a frequent campaign stop during presidential elections. In recent months, Columbus has continued to grab headlines – this time due to its booming economy. In the past two years, no other region has created more jobs than the Columbus metropolitan area1.
In fact, residents of Columbus have enjoyed a decline in unemployment rate from 7.3% in January of 2012 to 5.4% in December2. Furthermore, according to the internal data from CareOne Debt Relief Services®, on non-loan related consumer debt consolidation in Columbus shows that in 2012, Columbus residents owed a staggering 27.6% less than the national average. Despite these positive trends, many residents continue to struggle with their finances. According to a recent report from the Corporation for Enterprise Development and Policy Matter3, Ohio ranks 36th in the country based on residents’ ability to achieve financial security—a statistic which is partially based on the number of borrowers who are past due on debt payments.
