"Improving Collections Recovery Rates with Employment Data Integration"
Learn how employment data can be leveraged to improve collections efficiency and improve recovery rates.

This paper summarizes the analysis Equifax performed to validate the degree to which the Employment Indicator separates collection performance within the various ranges of a statistically valid recovery score.
