Press Release
For Immediate Release December 14, 2001

The September 30, 2001 Uniform Bank Performance Report (UBPR) now being distributed to all insured commercial banks and Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation - Insured Savings Banks (FDIC-ISB) is now available for sale to the public. For the most part, the formats for the commercial banks and the FDIC-ISB are identical; however, the FDIC-ISB has its own unique UBPR peer groupings.

The quarterly UBPR is designed for use by bank examiners, financial analysts and bank managers, and permits both summary and in-depth analysis of commercial banks plus FDIC-ISB financial performance and trends.

The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) is again making available computer tapes of UBPR data for the September 30, 2001 edition. These tapes contain bulk data for banks, peer groups and states, and are expected to be of interest to requestors who use large-scale bank data such as quarterly Call Report tapes.

The FFIEC is also making available the September 30, 2001 version of the UBPR Peer Group Ratio Distribution Report and the UBPR State Average Ratio Distribution Report. These reports give users a complete ratio distribution ranging from the 1st through the 99th percentile for all UBPR ratio values. The ratio values are presented for each UBPR group, and use the same definitions used in the UBPR Bank Report.

The User's Guide for the Uniform Bank Performance Report revised March 2001 is available at: WWW.FFIEC.GOV

The FFIEC was established in March 1979 to prescribe uniform principles, standards, and report forms and to promote uniformity in the supervision of financial institutions. The Council has five member agencies: the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the National Credit Union Administration, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, and the Office of Thrift Supervision. The Council's activities are supported by interagency task forces and by an advisory State Liaison Committee, comprised of five representatives of state agencies that supervise financial institutions.
