With the U.S. unemployment rate slowly improving but still at 11% due to COVID-19, WalletHub today released updated rankings for the States Where People Need Loans the Most Due to Coronavirus. Greater interest in getting a loan indicates that more people in the state are struggling to make ends meet.

In order to determine where people are most in need of loans as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, WalletHub combined internal credit report data with data on Google search increases for three loan-related terms in the 50 states and the District of Columbia.

North Carolina ranked 10th on the report (and South Carolina wasn’t far behind it, coming it at #16).
