N.H. bankruptcy filings start 2014 on the right track

23% fewer in January than a year ago

When it comes to New Hampshire bankruptcy filings, 2014 started where 2013 left off, which is relatively good news, since December had the lowest number of filings last year.

Indeed, the 209 January bankruptcy filings gets this year off to a much better start than 2013. It’s 23 percent fewer than the  number filed in January of 2013. And 2013 had a fifth fewer than 2012, and the lowest number since 2007. (This was the lowest number of bankruuptcy filings in the first month since 2007 as well.)
