Four-quarter growth is the growth from the end of the first quarter of 2022 through the first quarter of 2023. Most maps shown in this review display medians, or the 50th percentile of the distribution of the variable. In other words, for a given metric, half of all credit unions had a value at or above the median, while the other half had a value that was less than or equal to the median.3
Data presented in this review are rounded. Unless otherwise noted, indicators in percentages are rounded to the nearest tenth of a percentage point, while indicators in basis points are rounded to the nearest basis point. In the legends, the data range in each color band excludes the value of the lower bound but includes the value of the upper bound of the range. Credit unions are included in their states of chartering or the states in which their headquarters are located.
NCUA makes information about the financial performance of federally insured credit unions available through its online Research a Credit Union tool. Through this link, you can locate information contained in an individual credit union’s Call Report as well as obtain a Financial Performance Report and summary documents about a credit union’s performance.

1 Data are as of the 2023Q1 public release date. The definition of the “state” variable was modified with the 2022Q1 release.
2 Overseas territories—Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands— are included in the calculations of the U.S. statistics and the maps and reported in the summary indicators tables at the end of this report. Due to the small number of credit unions in each, however, they are not represented in the text.
3 Technically, by construction of the median, there can be several credit unions “tied” at the median value.
