FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
JUNE 6 V 1978
CONSUMER INSTALMENT CREDIT - APRIL 1978

CONSUMER INSTALMENT CREDIT EXPANDED BY $3.72 BILLION IN APRIL, SEASONALLY
ADJUSTEDt COMPARED WITH THE RECORD $4.07 BILLION ADVANCE IN MARCH. THE APRIL ADVANCE
WAS THE SECOND HlbHEST ON RECORD AND WAS FAR ABOVE THE $2.56 BILLION AVERAGE MONTHLY
EXPANSION DURING 1977.
BOTH NEW EXTENSIONS OF INSTALMENT CREDIT AND LIQUIDATIONS OF EXISTING
INDEBTEDNESS ADVANCED SHARPLY TO NEW HIGHS. EXTENSIONS WERE $22.12 BILLION, AFTER
SEASONAL ADJUSTMENT* WHILE LIQUIDATIONS REACHED $18.40 BILLION, RESULTING IN THE
$3.72 BILLION NET CHANGE.
AUTOMOBILE CREDIT, REFLECTING CONTINUING STRONG NEW-CAR SALES IN APRIL,
ACCOUNTED FOR A LARGER THAN USUAL PROPORTION OF TOTAL EXTENSIONS. CREDIT EXTENSIONS ROSE
MARGINALLY IN MOST OTHER CATEGORIES, AND THE NET GROWTH IN OUTSTANDINGS WAS LOWER IN
APRIL FOR EACH NON-AUTO CREDIT CATEGORY.
