Tampa Credit Counseling and Debt Consolidation Services
As a whole, our nation has struggled to find its feet after the Great Recession of 2008. Many Americans have found themselves in an overwhelming amount of debt over the past decade, and Tampa residents are no exception.
While the average household income is slightly more than $43,000, the average cost of a home ranks higher at more than $203,000. With daily expenses and the struggle to recover from the recession, it is understandable that many residents have found themselves in more debt than they anticipated.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Tampa’s unemployment rate has been steadily decreasing over the past year, ranking at 4.1 percent in May of 2016. That is lower than their rate last year, which was 5.3 percent, as well as the national average in May 2016, which was 4.5 percent. Research from a study of metro cities by the Brookings Institute ranks the Tampa area as 42nd in economic growth. The job growth for Tampa, according to the same study, has increased 7.9 percent over the last five years.
