After seeing headlines – Ten states account for more than 70% of nation’s first quarter total
This got me thinking about what percentage of each state’s population was hit with new foreclosure filings for the 1st quarter of this year. See the table – each was surprisingly under 1% of its population – wouldn’t you have thought it was WAY more? Secondly, by population, California has considerably fewer filings.

It just goes to show you there is a need to check behind the figures that are forwarded.
