CONSUMER INSTALLMENT CREDIT
Consumer installment credit outstanding increased by a seasonally adjusted
$4.2 billion in April, following a downward-revised $3.1 billion rise in March. The
annual rate of growth in April was 9.0 percent, up from the 6.8 percent gain in March
but below the 11.8 percent first quarter pace. Growth in automobile credit slowed in
April to $0.7 billion from $1.0 billion. The expansion in revolving credit was slightly
less than in March, while there was some strengthening in "other" borrowings.
