|Total Consumer Credit
Excluding Mortgages, Seasonally Adjusted
Source: Federal Reserve, Grubb & Ellis
|The amount of consumer credit outstanding rose sharply in November and December by annualized rates of 9.9 and 9.3 percent, respectively. Consumer credit has two main components: nonrevolving credit, which includes loans for automobiles, mobile homes, education and a few other categories, and revolving credit, primarily credit card loans. Since hitting bottom in May 2010, nonrevolving credit, which accounts for more than two-thirds of the total, has expanded every month except August 2011 when the debt ceiling debate reached a climax in Congress and confidence sagged. Revolving loan balances hit a low in April 2011 and have risen fitfully since then. Mortgage debt on one-to-four-family residences, which is not counted as consumer credit (and is not included in the chart) continues to decline, falling $59 billion in the third quarter of 2011 to $10.3 trillion. Thus, while consumers continue to shed mortgage debt, they are adding debt at a rapid pace to pay for vehicles and educations and at a modest pace on their credit cards. Growth in revolving credit helped lift consumer spending late last year, while the ongoing decline in outstanding mortgages is supporting robust levels of apartment leasing.|
