These two industries have pulled San Francisco's overall delinquency rate to 12.71 percent year over year, a sizable increase.
Atlantic City, NJ had elevated delinquency rates of roughly 59.05 percent down slightly from 59.98 in Q2, indicating the east coast hospitality industry is still weathering financial storms from several high profile properties announcing closures.
In the Finance industry, Dayton Ohio has seen its delinquency rate jump from 6 percent to over 58 percent. Delinquency in Dayton was just over 30 percent in Q2.
Looking at small business delinquency year over year we can see a few interesting stories developing. Santa Rosa is the most improved at 4.53 percent, and in Jackson, Mississipi the communications industry saw a large jump in delinquency during Q3.
