Minnesota residents can brag about more than their 10,000 lakes — they typically have the country’s best credit scores too. As in previous years, the midwestern state has America’s highest average credit score, according to Experian.
Those living in Minnesota have an average score of 713, which falls into the “good” range of scores between 670 to 739, according to Experian.
