Credit score

Credit score

While it's generally considered impolite to label human beings with a numerical judgement, credit scores do just that, and, besides those of us who have faked our own deaths, everybody has one. It is a rating of your creditworthiness, or how likely you are to repay a loan or debt. It's designed more for consumers, to understand their credit health at a glance, rather than for lenders who take a far more sophisticated approach when deciding if you're good for the cash.
