New, 25 comments

Aiming to dispel the belief that home foreclosures are a widespread national problem, researchers at the University of Virginia harvested some data and put together a study that says 62 percent of foreclosures in 2008 were in four states: California, Nevada, Florida and Arizona. And via the Times' Economix blog, we get the handy color-coded map below, which shows Nevada leading the way amongst states with high foreclosure rates. New York falls safely in the middle category of the blue states, which are the ones with foreclosure rates below the national average.
