Congressional Overlay

An interactive map of congressional-level student debt trends from 2009 to 2019.

Following the September 2020 release of Part 3, “Unceasing Debt, Disparate Burdens: Student Debt and Young America,” the research team published an interactive map of congressional-level student debt trends from 2009 to 2019. With the approach of the 2020 election, the tool allows advocates, policymakers, and constituents to track student debt burdens, education costs, income, and geographic access at the district level.

JFI joined the Higher Ed Not Debt coalition to add our research to a broader set of organizations investigating and advocating around rising student debt levels nationwide. In a “#CancelStudentDebt Week of Action” in late September, Higher Ed Not Debt organizations utilized fact sheets featuring JFI’s recently-released data mapping student debt levels nationwide.
