Historical Data

The historical credit data are made available from 100% of the Equifax National Consumer Database. As information is being added to the database, it goes through a rigorous quality-assurance process, including automated and manual reviews, to ensure the highest accuracy possible. The credit data are sourced from the full Equifax credit database and include consumers with at least one active trade. This results in approximately 220+ million consumer records in a given month. Selection always occurs at month’s end so that the results are not affected by in‐month reporting fluctuations. Monthly historical files starting with June 2005 were used. Therefore, full “open‐to‐close” vintage data are available starting with July 2005, while information on trades in older vintages–when available from the consumer credit files–is also included. Equifax developed special credit trend attributes that aggregate the consumer file into attributes specifically intended for monthly trending. These attributes consider only trades with activity in the last three months and look only at current delinquency statuses in order to focus on the true state of credit (balances, high credits, delinquencies, etc.) in the given month. These attributes were calculated for each consumer file and then aggregated to the ZIP code, county, metropolitan statistical area, and state levels. This will allow to quickly adapt to any future changes in county or MSA definitions.

Score Bands

Origination and current risk score-level classification is done at the consumer level, based on VantageScore 3.0 – Odds Scale (score range 300‐850). There are 11 score bands, allowing the user flexibility in identifying consumer risk profiles of interest.

Term Bands

Installment loans (auto, consumer finance, first mortgage, HELOANs, and student) are further classified into loan term bands. Loan term is reported by lenders and financial institutions and represents the number of months an installment loan is to be paid. provides loan term on installment loans in fixed ranges or bands at the time of originations.
