  • 20. Summary 3: Student Debt and Other Debt  Young borrowers reduced their debt from 2005 to 2012, but the reductions were more pronounced among borrowers with high student loan balances, likely reflecting declines in demand and access to credit.  High levels of student debt delinquency reduces young borrowers’ ability to secure other types of credit.  Student loan delinquency is also associated with higher delinquency rates on other types of debt. 20
  • 21. Conclusion  Higher education is an important investment among young workers for better jobs and higher income, but it is accompanied with a growing student debt burden.  Total student loan balances almost tripled between 2004 and 2012 due to increasing numbers of borrowers and higher balances per person.  Nearly one third of the borrowers in repayment are delinquent on student debt.  The higher burden of student loans and higher delinquencies may affect borrowers’ access to other types of credit and the performance of other debt. 21
