Mounting Debt

About 19 percent of households reported they are struggling with student loan debt, according to a Pew analysis survey published Sept. 26, up from 15 percent of people who reported the same in 2007, the year before the start of the global recession. Respondents reported owing an average of $23,349 in 2007, which increased to $26,682 in 2010.
