The FDIC values the ability to compare results over time and the 2015 Household Survey retains successful elements of the previous surveys, including the core unbanked and underbanked measurements, while also reorganizing and adding questions to gain new insights relevant to serving a diverse range of consumers. The 2015 Household Survey retains many questions from previous surveys and continues to collect information on the use of prepaid cards, direct deposits, and the reasons for not having a bank account. One commenter suggested the addition of specific questions to measure household financial fragility to help understand the connections between emergency savings and banking access (i.e., household’s ability to access $2000). The 2015 Household Survey does not include this particular question due to the need to keep the average length short to reduce non-response. However, it contains a number of new questions that will help the FDIC better understand households’ financial condition. Specifically, the survey will ask about ways in which households save money, their ability to meet their monthly obligations, their income volatility, and their access to mainstream credit. One commenter suggested collecting information on a wider range of credit products. The 2015 questionnaire added a new section on the use of credit products, including mainstream banking credit products (e.g., credit cards, line of credits) to capture a more complete picture of households’ use of credit. However, due to space constraints, questions are focused on mainstream credit products that are more likely to be substitutes for the small-dollar, shortterm credit available from alternative financial service providers. The commenter also suggested collecting more information on the frequency of use of credit and transaction products in order to better understand households’ varying intensity of use of these products. This suggestion is in part addressed by the revisions made in the 2015 survey. In addition to the use of financial products in the last 12 months, the proposed survey also asks households about their typical use of these products to better differentiate regular users from one-time users. The commenter also made suggestions to improve the usability of the online VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:14 Apr 03, 2015 Jkt 235001 tool for analyzing the survey data that is currently available at www.economicinclusion.gov. These comments are helpful and will be taken into account the next time we consider revising the tools. One commenter encouraged the FDIC to offer training to municipalities and others on how to use and maximize the opportunities offered by the custom table generator at: www.economicinclusion.gov. The FDIC’s Community Affairs staff work with local stakeholders to disseminate information about how to use and access the survey data, including the use of the table generator tool at: www.economicinclusion.gov. The FDIC will continue to make sure that this information is regularly shared in presentations and outreach materials. Request for Comment Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the FDIC’s functions, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the estimates of the burden of the information collection; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the information collection on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. The FDIC will consider all comments to determine the extent to which the information collection should be modified prior to submission to OMB for review and approval. After the comment period closes, comments will be summarized and/or included in the FDIC’s request to OMB for approval of the collection. All comments will become a matter of public record.
