For immediate release
November 6, 1986

CONSUMER INSTALLMENT CREDIT
Consumer installment credit outstanding rose a seasonally adjusted $8.4 billion
in September, following a downward-revised $3*4 billion gain in August; the September
increase was the largest since the $10.3 billion advance in September 1985. The annual
rate of advance in September was 17.4 percent—well above the 7.1 percent August rise
and the 11.6 percent increase of the first 8 months of the year—led by a sharp increase
in automobile credit in response to sales incentive programs. Revolving credit grew
somewhat faster than in August, while all other (mobile home plus "other") credit slowed
from the previous month's pace.
