Re: Fewer people have terrible credit scores

Negatives without any positive tradelines will get you that low.

 

That said, you mentioned a absolute drop in numbers down to a percentage; could you post from your source either the old percentage, or the absolute number from this year or last year?

 

1.4 M americans doesn't seem like a large percentage if we assume roughly 150M have a FICO score of some sort so maybe 15%?   Not sure on that 150M number, just making a swag.

 

 

Starting Score: EQ 561, TU 567, EX 599* (12/30/11, EX lender pull 12/29/11)
Current Score: EQ 04 673, EQ 8 707, TU 720, EX 702* (09/02/14, EX older)
Goal Score: 700 on EQ '04 (01/01/15)
