Top sites for financial stats

Our organization is asked to participate in media opportunities on a regular basis. Before each interview, we like to prepare by researching the latest financial statistics. Here are seven of my go-to Web sites for speedy stats: Facts for Features. This is a great resource for finding fun facts like the dollar value of U.S. imports of American flags ($3.4 million in 2008). Comprehensive list of statistics including numbers on credit card debt, credit card delinquencies, credit scores, credit card interest rates, bankruptcies, and more. Credit Education Center. Fair Issac analyzed a representative national sample of millions of consumer credit profiles to discover the average use of credit by today's consumers. Consumer Trend Data. Great statistics beautifully broken down into timely topics such as Father’s Day and Back to College. NEFE Research. In-depth exploration of financial issues. Featuring the results of the “Young and In Debt” study launched by the National Endowment for Financial Education and USA TODAY®. Research. A great site for looking at the impacts of financial problems on employees and employers. Financial Literacy Statistics. Statistics compiled by the Young Americans Center for Financial Literacy on the state of financial literacy in America today.
