Georgia didn’t fare very well in any area of the latest CredAbility Consumer Distress Index.
As noted in a story by the AJC’s Arielle Kass, Georgia ranked as the third most financially distressed state in the union in the fourth quarter of 2011.
That low ranking was reflected in the individual category measurements used by CredAbility, including employment, housing, credit, household budget and net worth.
Of those areas, Georgians did best in net worth where the state’s residents were only the 26th most distressed.
Georgians also ranked in the middle in household budget, at 25th.
Where we really fared poorly was in employment at No. 8, in credit at No. 6 and in housing at No. 5.
Probably no surprises there.
