CONSUMER INSTALLMENT CREDIT

Consumer installment credit outstanding decreased $2.44 billion in
January, following a $0.34 billion drop in December. This marks the first
back-to~back decline since December 1986 - February 1987. In January 1991,
revolving credit posted a gain after declining the previous month; seasonal
adjustment of this component is difficult for the December-January period
owing to the heavy volume of Christmas season transactions and variation
in the timing of their entry on the books of lending institutions. Auto and
"other" credit both declined in January while mobile home borrowing expanded.

extended to individuals that is scheduled to be repaid (or has the option of repayment) in two
or more installments, excluding loans secured by real estate.
2. Interest rates are annual percentage rates as specified by Regulation Z. Commercial
bank data are simple unweighted averages of each bank's "most common" rate charged during
the first calendar week of the month. Finance company data from the subsidiaries of the
three major U.S. automobile manufacturers are volume-weighted averages covering all loans
of each type purchased during the month.
3. Outstanding balances of pools upon which securities have been issued; these balances
are no longer carried on the balance sheets of the loan originator.
4. Type-of-credit totals include estimates for certain holders for which only consumer
credit totals are available.
r = revised.

p = preliminary.
