Charge-offs are measured on a net basis-loans charged off as losses minus recoveries on loans previously charged off. The percentage of loans charged off as losses each quarter (net of recoveries on loans previously charged off as losses) is calculated by summing net commercial loan charge-off for all banks in the size group and dividing by the sum of their total commercial loans. Data are annualized.
For institutions before March 2001 that did not file FFIEC 033 and FFIEC 034 or for all filers after December 2000, the net commercial charge offs is the difference between Charge-offs on Commercial and Industrial Loans call item RIAD4638 and Recoveries on Commercial and Industrial Loans call item RIAD4608. For institutions that did file FFIEC 033 and FFIEC 034 before March 2001 the net commercial charge offs is the difference between Charge-offs on Commercial (Time and Demand) and All Other Loans call item RIAD4264 and Recoveries on Commercial (Time and Demand) and All Other Loans call item RIAD4265. Total commercial loans is the Commercial and Industrial Loans call item RCFD1766.
The asset classes are determined by using Average Total Assets call item RCFD2170 greater than $1B and less than $10B.
