Refreshed Data Set

Score More People with Greater Precision
VantageScore has introduced many innovations including expanding the scoreable universe and enabling lenders to reach more consumers…safely and soundly.
21% of millennials have “thin files," making it difficult for lenders to see them as strong borrowers and leading to more young consumers not able to get the credit they need.
