Survey of Credit Underwriting Practices Archive

The Survey of Credit Underwriting Practices was published annually from 1995-2016. The surveys included OCC examiners’ assessments of underwriting practices and quantity and direction of credit risk. The surveys identified trends in lending standards and credit risk for the most common types of commercial and retail credit offered by OCC-supervised banks.
