  • That is a great question and one that we are building the functionality to be able to address more precisely using external (non-5300) data. I would certainly expect that local market conditions play a big role, but am eager to see if there are exceptions to that--my sense is that there will be, and that we can learn something interesting from those credit unions. Thanks for your comment--it is very helpful in structuring our analysis to hear what credit unions want to know from the data.
  • How much effect does the performance of the credit union's home market have on growth performance? I would guess that credit unions in areas of high growth grow faster on average than those located in flat or shrinking areas?
