(UNDATED) - Indiana families are struggling with finances.

Experian just released its 7th annual State of Credit report and Indiana isn't keeping up with the rest of the country. In the past year, consumers in every Indiana town increased their credit scores, but they also took on more debt!

Since 2007, Experian has followed 6-Indiana cities to track consumer credit scores, bankcard usage, mortgages and debt. Here are some of Indiana's findings in this year's report:

  • 34% have delinquent bills
  • #85 Ft. Wayne's national ranking
  • 660 Avg. credit score in Indianapolis
  • $4,661 South Bend's avg. credit card balance
  • $35,398 Avg. consumer debt in Indiana
  • $128, 367 Avg. mortgage debt in Lafayette
