Bank Competition and Concentrations: The Impact of Credit Unions (ICPSR 1224)
Principal Investigator(s): Emmons, William R., Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis; Schmid, Frank A., Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis
One aspect of the financial services industry is that for-profit institutions, such as commercial banks, compete directly with not-for-profit financial intermediaries, such as credit unions. In this article, the authors analyze the competition between banks and credit unions. Using annual county-level data on banking-market concentration and household participation rates at occupational credit unions for the period between 1989 and 1996, the authors find empirical evidence of two-way competitive interactions between banks and credit unions.
