Your credit score can affect a lot of things in your life from major purchases to applying for loans and so much more. How do you think Yakima's average credit score is? Admittedly I didn't think much of it but, to my surprise it was better than I expected.

Yakima's at 47% which, sure, is less than average but not much less. We could do a lot better but we could certainly do worse. A lot worse like Sacramento, Rochester, Milwaukee, Memphis and a lot more, all major cities with worse credit scores than Yakima. There are several that came in last places including Flint, Michigan and Las Vegas, Nevada.

Wallet Hub comes up with lists like this often. If we all do our part maybe we can be on the better side of average next time.
