FR 2028b/s Survey of Terms of Bank Lending to Farmers/Prime Rate Supplement
The FR 2028B collects information on farm loans made by commercial banks during a representative week. The collected data include price and nonprice terms. The respondents provide information on the stated rate of interest on the loan and the frequency with which interest is compounded. In addition there are questions concerning other important loan terms, including loan size, commitment status, maturity, collateralization, the purpose of the loan and risk rating. The FR 2028S, a companion report, collects institutions' prime interest rate for the days reported. Together with the Survey of Terms of Business Lending (FR 2028A), these reports constitute the Survey of Terms of Lending (STBL) report series.
