About the survey
Supporting Statement for the
Survey of Terms of Lending (OMB No. 7100-0061):
Survey of Terms of Business Lending (FR 2028A),
Survey of Terms of Bank Lending to Farmers (FR 2028B), and
Prime Rate Supplement to Survey of Terms of Lending (FR 2028S)
The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, under delegated authority from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), proposes to extend for three years, with revision, the quarterly Survey of Terms of Lending (STL; FR 2028; OMB No. 7100-0061). The voluntary STL collects unique information concerning price and certain nonprice terms of loans made to businesses and farmers during the first full business week of the mid-month of each quarter (February, May, August, and November). The survey comprises three reporting forms: the FR 2028A, Survey of Terms of Business Lending; the FR 2028B, Survey of Terms of Bank Lending to Farmers; and the FR 2028S, Prime Rate Supplement to the Survey of Terms of Lending. The FR 2028A and FR 2028B collect detailed data on individual loans made during the survey week, and the FR 2028S collects the prime interest rate for each day of the survey from both FR 2028A and FR 2028B respondents.
From these sample STL data, estimates of the terms of business loans and farm loans extended during the reporting week are constructed. The aggregate estimates for business loans are published in the quarterly E.2 release, Survey of Terms of Business Lending.
