Small Business Lending Index For US
SBLI

The Small Business Lending Index (SBLI) measures the volume of new commercial loans and leases to small businesses .

The Thomson Reuters/PayNet Small Business Lending Index is formulated on a monthly basis at the national level and is indexed so that January 2005 equals 100.

The PayNet Small Business Lending Index (PayNet SBLI) is segmented into 988 indices at the national, state, and industry levels which are formulated on a rolling 12-month basis due to the volatility of smaller sample sizes.

  • US Rolling-12=PayNet SBLI at the national level
  • US NAICS xx Rolling-12=PayNet SBLI for the xx NAICS industry (for example Agriculture) at the national level
  • ss Rolling-12=PayNet SBLI for the state of SS (for example NY)
  • ss NAICS xx Rolling-12=PayNet SBLI for the xx NAICS industry within the state of ss

The Thomson Reuters/PayNet Small Business Lending Index (SBLI) seasonally adjusted originations decreased 1% from 138.5 (revised) in November 2017 to 136.5 in December. Compared to December 2016, the Index increased 2%.

In 2014, PayNet introduced an enhancement to the Small Business Lending Index by creating 918 State and Industry indices to allow for more granular analysis of small business lending activity. Unlike the national Thomson Reuters/PayNet Small Business Lending Index, these indices needed to be formulated on a rolling 12-month basis due to the volatility of smaller sample sizes. The monthly Thomson Reuters/PayNet Small Business Lending Index pinpoints inflection points in the business cycle and changes in performance of financial assets which the State and Industry indices track later in the cycle. PayNet provides the US Rolling-12 Index in the charts above as a means to confirm the potential of an impending inflection point by comparison to the monthly Thomson Reuters/PayNet Small Business Lending Index. Furthermore, the US Rolling-12 SBLI provides an apples to apples benchmark for the performance of each State or Industry index relative to the National condition.
