Student debt is terrible, in charts Published: February 18, 2014

Citing a report released Tuesday by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the Washington Post's Wonkblog reports that the country's student loan debt isn't easing and still tops $1 trillion.

The report allso found that student debt remains the second largest source of household debt behind mortgages.

Overall, consumer debt, including mortgages, auto loans and credit cards, increased by $241 billion during the fourth quarter of last year – the largest quarter to quarter jump since the third quarter of 2007.

Wonkblog's also got a handful of charts examining the state of student loan debt. Have a look over at WaPo.
