Q.How can I find reports and data about individual banks?
A.The FDIC provides detailed information on an institution-level basis in our Institution Directory. This includes comprehensive financial and demographic data for every FDIC-insured institution, including the most recent quarterly financial statements, with performance and condition ratios.

Q.How can I find data on the US banking industry?
A.Statistics at a Glance provides a view of the industry's overall picture. This includes the latest quarterly data (Current Snapshot) that defines the banking industry, as well as the most recent trends (Industry Trends). The FDIC Quarterly Banking Profile identifies the latest performance trends in the industry and your state (QBP State Tables - annual and quarterly data for large and small institutions go back to 1995). Branching and deposit market share information is available through Summary of Deposits and Deposit Market Share Report. These sites present aggregates of each institution's deposits in any combined choice of states, metro areas, cities, counties or zip codes. Statistics on Depository Institutions allows you to create custom "ad hoc" Peer Groups, reports and downloads; analyze prospective mergers, classes of competitors; compare up to four columns of data. You can also download the results into standard data base formats.
 
Q.Do you have any research papers on banking?
A.The FDIC established the Center for Financial Research (CFR) to encourage and support innovative research on topics that are important to the FDIC's role as deposit insurer and bank supervisor. Also, the FDIC Working Papers Series provides the research community and other interested parties with the results of research efforts by economists at the FDIC. The FDIC also has many historical studies that can be found on the Research & Analysis page.
 
Q.Where can I find information on failed banks and dividends the FDIC might declare?
A.The Failed Bank List page has a separate Web page for each bank closed since October of 2000. Each of these pages contains detailed information on the receivership and effect on bank customers. The FDIC Dividends from Failed Banks page has data on the funds distributed to those who have an outstanding claim (from uninsured funds) against the failed bank.
