2019 Community Bank Survey Countdown Begins

Community banks have just over two weeks to complete the CSBS 2019 Community Bank Survey. Responses are due by June 30.  

Early results show core deposit growth and federal regulation are the top challenges for community banks nationwide.

We are also getting early information for our inaugural Community Bank Sentiment Index. The data collected so far shows community banks are generally optimistic about business conditions and operations expansions. 

Temple University economists William Dunkelberg and Jonathan Scott are compiling the Index based on information from the annual survey. The index is intended to bring attention to market conditions and how they impact prospects for growth and participation for community banks in their communities.  

The survey results will be released in October as part of annual Community Banking in the 21st Century research and policy conference held at the St. Louis Federal Reserve and hosted by CSBS, the Federal Reserve System and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.
