WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Americans' debt level rose during the third quarter, driven by an increase in mortgage loans, according to a Federal Reserve Bank of New York report published on Tuesday.
Total U.S. household debt was $12.96 trillion in the three months to September, up $116 billion from the prior three months. Debt levels were $605 billion higher than during the third quarter of 2016.
The proportion of overall debt that was delinquent rose slightly to 4.9 percent from 4.8 percent.
