ATLANTA May 23, 2012 National Consumer Credit Trends Report $26.2 billion April 2012 $54.1 billion April 2009 $24.0 billion
Non-home finance write-off dollars have declined due to both improvements in general repayment patterns and lower numbers of bankruptcies. Bankruptcy dollars have declined at a slower rate, comprising 15.7% of write-off dollars in 2009 but 18.5% of write-off dollars today. This is due to faster declines in the average dollar size of general delinquencies, relative to the peak of the recession.
