FRED has added 1,106 new series of Senior Credit Officer Opinion Survey on Dealer Financing Terms (SCOOS) data from the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. Each series represents a count for an offered response to one of the 79 survey questions.

The SCOOS is a quarterly survey of 20 or more financial institutions, providing qualitative information about the availability and terms of credit in securities financing and over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives markets, which are important conduits for leverage in the financial system. The participating institutions account for most of the dealer financing of dollar-denominated securities to non-dealers and are the most active intermediaries in OTC derivatives markets.

For more information about the survey, see the SCOOS data page.
