The NCUA credit union trend document reflects data that was reported in the NCUA's second quarter call report document, which was released on Aug. 31. The credit union industry's overall performance grew stronger in almost every category during the second quarter of 2012, as charge-offs, bankruptcy filings and loan loss reserves also declined.

The first-half credit union data is broken down into chart form in this latest NCUA release.
