FEDERAL RESERVE BANK
OF DALLAS

Dallas, Texas, April 29, 1938.

OPERATING RATIOS OF MEMBER BANKS

To the Member Bank Addressed:
There is shown on the opposite side of this sheet a statement of the
operating ratios of member banks in the Eleventh Federal Reserve District
for the year 1937.
The items of assets and liabilities upon which the ratios are based rep­
resent averages of the amounts shown on the condition reports of March 31,
June 30 and December 31, 1937. The data on earnings and expenses were
derived by combining the amounts shown on the reports of earnings and
dividends for the six months’ periods ended June 30 and December 31,
1937.
The item “ net addition to profits” represents net earnings from current
operations plus recoveries on loans and securities, profits on securities sold,
etc., less charge-offs on loans, securities and other assets.
The banks are grouped according to the size of their deposits. The ratios
in each group are the averages of the ratios of individual banks in that
group; consequently, the larger banks in a group do not have an undue in­
fluence on the group ratios.
It will be noted that space has been provided on the form so that you
may enter the ratios of your bank and compare them with the ratios of the
group to which it belongs.
We trust that this information will be of value to you.

Yours very truly,
b. a
