New report says NH residents are 10th worst in nation when it comes to managing money


New Hampshire residents are the 10th worst at managing money in the U.S., according to a new CreditCards.com report.

The ranking is based on residents' average credit scores relative to the median household income in the state.

The Granite State's average credit score is 13 points lower than what would be expected given the state’s median income.
The state has the nation’s highest median income, about 35 percent higher than the national median, and yet it has only the 5th-highest average credit score.

An interactive map prepared by creditcards.com allows viewers to compare states' money management rank and their average credit scores, median household income and average balances on credit cards.
