Brian from  posted an interesting article about the 20% of Americans who do not have debt. He says:

According to a recent report published by the Urban Institute, 20% of all Americans with a credit file do not have any recordable debt. Sorry my Canadian friends, this is a U.S. only report. So I ask are you part of the 20 percent? I’m not yet, but have a plan on getting there. The report breaks debt down into two main categories mortgage debt and non-mortgage debt. Non-mortgage debt including many types of personal debt, including car loans, education loans, and credit cards. As well as uncollected debt such as medical and utility bills.
