June Survey: The share of respondents who applied for credit over the past twelve months rose from 39.9 percent to 43.6 percent—the highest such reading since the start of the SCE Credit Access Survey in October 2013. The rise in application rates was broad-based but especially large for respondents aged 40 and younger.
