FRED QUESTIONS
1. Are U.S. banks increasing in size? Use FRED to plot since 1984 on a quarterly basis the number of U.S.
commercial banks (FRED code: USNUM) and, on the right scale, the volume of their deposits (FRED code:
DPSACBM027SBOG). Download the data and compute the average deposit size of banks in the first quarters
of 1984 and 2016.
2. What share of U.S. banks fail? Plot since 2000 the fraction (in percent) of bank failures (FRED code:
BKFTTLA641N) relative to the number of banks (FRED code: USNUM). Comment on the timing and the
proportion of failures. Were most of the failing banks large or small?
