CONSUMER INSTALMENT CREDIT
Consumer installment credit outstanding decreased by $0.56 billion in May,
after rising $3.68 billion in April. The 1.1 percent annual rate of decline in May was
the largest since the 4.5 percent drop in July 1980. Growth of installment credit has
slowed sharply to a 2-1/4 percent annual rate in the first five month* of 1987 - from
a 10-1/2 percent rate in 1986 - in part reflecting the popularity of home equity credit.
Revolving credit outstanding increased in May but at a much slower pace than in April;
tomobile lending declined in May as did mobile home and other loans.
