From the Federal Reserve: The October 2022 Senior Loan Officer Opinion Survey on Bank Lending Practices

The October 2022 Senior Loan Officer Opinion Survey on Bank Lending Practices (SLOOS) addressed changes in the standards and terms on, and demand for, bank loans to businesses and households over the past three months, which generally correspond to the third quarter of 2022.

Regarding loans to businesses, survey respondents reported, on balance, tighter standards and weaker demand for commercial and industrial (C&I) loans to firms of all sizes over the third quarter. Meanwhile, banks reported tighter standards and weaker demand for all commercial real estate (CRE) loan categories.

For loans to households, lending standards tightened or remained basically unchanged across all categories of residential real estate (RRE) loans and demand weakened for all such loans. In addition, banks reported tighter standards and stronger demand for home equity lines of credit (HELOCs). Standards tightened for credit card loans and other consumer loans while standards for auto loans remained unchanged. Meanwhile, demand strengthened for credit card loans, was unchanged for other consumer loans, and weakened for auto loans.
