Consumer credit in April rebounded as U.S. consumers raised their debt by a
seasonally adjusted $11.1 billion to $2.820 trillion, the Federal Reserve said.
The Fed reported a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.75 percent. Revolving credit increased at an annual rate of 1 percent, while non-revolving credit increased at an annual rate of 6.5 percent.
Non-revolving credit, which includes student and auto loans, rose to $1.970 trillion, up $10.38 billion, on a seasonally adjusted basis, The Wall Street Journal reported.
Credit-card debt rose by $682.2 million to $849.81 billion.
The Fed said seasonally unadjusted outstanding consumer credit was $2.8 billion, covering most short- and intermediate-term credit extended to individuals, excluding loans secured by real estate.
