About the G.20

Annual Growth Rates, Levels, and Flows of Outstanding Receivables at Finance Companies.

The first table of the G.20 shows seasonally adjusted data for the flows and levels of finance company receivables outstanding. These data include simple annual percent changes of total, consumer, real estate, and business receivables. The percent change in a given period is calculated as the flow of receivables in the current period divided by the level in the previous period. Percent changes and levels are calculated from unrounded data. The second and third pages of the G.20 show data that are not seasonally adjusted. The second page contains levels of outstanding receivables by receivable type, while the third page contains flow of receivables by type.

Benchmark Data

Every five years since 1955, the Federal Reserve has conducted the Finance Company Survey (FR 3033s), which is sent to a stratified random sample of finance and mortgage companies. In the most recent survey, the Board surveyed roughly 2,400 finance companies to collect balance sheet data as of December 2010. Approximately 1,000 companies responded. The survey comprises detailed information from both sides of the respondents' balance sheets. See table 1 for the specific items used in our calculations.

Indicator Data

Indicator data for finance companies are collected from the Domestic Finance Company Report of Consolidated Assets and Liabilities (FR 2248). This report collects balance sheet and, where appropriate, off-balance-sheet data on major categories of receivables and on major short-term liabilities held or securitized by finance companies. For quarter-end months (March, June, September, and December), additional asset and liability items are collected to provide a full balance sheet. The Board is currently authorized to survey 70 companies each month; because of consolidation and attrition, the current reporting panel as of November 2011 consists of a random sample of about 50 companies. See table 1 for the specific items used in our calculations.
