Research and Resources

This report captures the lending patterns of banks and other depository institutions in the small business credit market for loans $1 million or less. The Call Report and Community Reinvestment Act (CRA)databases show the changes for small business loans, all commercial loans $1 million or less from banks, and small business loan size subcategories under $100,000 and $100,000 to $1 million. Both these databases cover only a portion of the credit extended to small businesses annually, excluding lending from nonbank institutions such as finance companies and alternative lenders.
The SCE is a nationally representative, Internet-based survey of a rotating panel of approximately 1,300 household heads. Respondents participate in the panel for up to twelve months, with a roughly equal number rotating in and out of the panel each month.
Most American consumers likely are familiar with credit scores, as every lender in the United States uses them to evaluate credit risk. But the Customer Lifetime Value (CLV) that many firms use to target ads, prices, products, and service levels to individual consumers may be less familiar, or the Affluence Index that ranks households according to their spending power.
