  • Even as the economy strengthens – with the labor market adding 266,000 jobs in November – some Americans are seeing one key personal indicator fall: their credit score.
  • Researchers noted that underwriting standards tightened for auto loans, and the median originating credit score rose 8 points to 771.
  • Americans between the ages of 20 and 29 had the lowest average score, 662, compared to people aged 60 and over, whose scores averaged 749.
