The number of personal loans that are outstanding has doubled in the last few years.
In 2016, there were about $12 billion in personal loans outstanding, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
That’s up from about $7 billion in 2015.
The Bureau of Economic Analysis estimates that personal loans in the U, including home mortgages, auto loans, credit cards and credit unions, will exceed $15 trillion in 2020.
But there are other factors at play.
For instance, the number of people on government assistance has increased.
The number on food stamps and disability insurance have also grown.
The unemployment rate has also gone up over the past few years, according the Bureau of Labour Statistics.
Some of the trends in the data are related to changes in the way people borrow, such as people using a personal loan to pay for a down payment, and to changes to how people use their credit cards, according a report released last week by the BLS.
One of the findings was that people are taking on more personal loans and the debt they have in their accounts has increased by about $3,600.
The amount of debt on credit cards has also increased by $1,800, according BLS data.
Many people are using credit cards to pay off credit card debt.
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau estimates that nearly $4.6 trillion in credit card and other debt was outstanding in the United States in 2016, according that BLS report.
And the bureau says that about $8.5 trillion in debt owed to consumers was outstanding at the end of last year.
But that figure does not account for loans that people made on their own and are refinancing.
The bureau says it has seen the number on credit card balances go up about 7 percent this year.
That would mean that about 6 million people have used their own credit cards on credit or refinancing their debt.
But it does not include loans that were made on behalf of another person.
The BLS also released data showing that Americans are taking out more loans to pay down debt than ever before.
They report that the average household had a credit card outstanding of $1.8 million in 2016.
That number is on pace to surpass $2.2 million by 2021, according data from the Federal Reserve.
About 14 percent of American households reported an average credit card balance of more than $100,000 at the start of this year, up from 13 percent in 2016 and 11 percent in 2015, according Data from the Bureau’s Survey of Consumer Finances.
That increase is partly due to higher interest rates, the bureau reports.
The average credit score on a consumer’s credit report has increased since 2010, according government data.
