Notes:
* State rankings are from 1 (highest) to 49 (lowest). We did not calculate state averages when the usable cases with student debt data cover less than 30 percent of bachelorís degree recipients in the Class of 2012 or when the underlying data for that state showed a change of 30 percent or more in average debt from the previous year. Such large year-to-year swings likely reflect different institutions reporting each year, reporting errors, or changes in methodology by institutions reporting the data, rather than actual changes in debt levels.
** Debt data as reported by campuses to Petersonís Undergraduate Financial Aid and Undergraduate Databases. © 2013 Petersonís, a Nelnet company. All rights reserved.
 
All data are from public and private nonprofit four-year institutions only. Some colleges did not report student debt data. Only colleges that granted bachelor's degrees and reported the percentage of graduates with debt and average debt are included in the state figures. Enrollment and tuition data are from the National Center for Education Statistics, Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System. Pell Data are from the U.S. Department of Education. Student debt, Pell Grant, and other data can be compiled into sortable tables or downloaded into a spreadsheet on our College InSight web site, college-insight.org.

Calculations by the Project on Student Debt. See "Student Debt and the Class of 2012" report for details.
