Your credit utilization percentage is a measurement of the amount of credit you’re using compared to the amount of credit you have available. In other words, if you have a $10,000 combined limit on your credit cards and you carry a balance of $5,000, then your credit utilization percentage is 50%.

To find out more about the significance of this figure, watch this featured video presented by a certified financial planner. He explains that the lower the percentage is, the better your credit score will be.
