Student loan geography

Vox shows us maps of student loan total debt and delinquencies around Washington, DC.  The two are not the same, revealing that the absolute level of student loan debt is not (at first at least) indicative of trouble. I'd love to see a map of percent with completed degrees, because my prior is that it's student loan debt that is accrued without an accompanying degree that's probably the most pernicious.
