debtOn Tuesday, Mr. Cooper will announce the results of a nationwide survey of more than 1,000 Americans with more than $500 in credit card debt. The survey will look at the impact of debt on the daily life of an average American. The online survey, titled “Climbing out of Debt: Finding Solutions for High-interest Problems,” was conducted as part of Mr. Cooper’s mission to better understand and serve its customers, in partnership with YouGov Plc. between April 13-16, 2018. The sample size is representative of all U.S. adults above the age of 18 years.
