In addition, November marks the 7th consecutive month of annual increases.  The States with the highest foreclosure rates were Illinois (one in every 3,187 housing units with a foreclosure filing); Florida (one in every 3,319 housing units); Ohio (one in every 3,669 housing units); Delaware (one in every 3,800 housing units); and New Jersey (one in every 4,096 housing units).
