Increases in personal debt of young Americans, by category in 2011

This graph shows responses to a survey question in the United States in 2011 asking young people about their personal debt and under which category any increase in their personal debt over the past 4 years would fall. 25 percent of 25 to 34 year olds said that the increase in their debt was due to a mortgage.

If your personal debt has increased in the last four years, has that been increased credit card debt, mortgage debt, school loans, a car loan, other personal loans, taxes, medical bills, or something else?
