Regional Banking Conditions
Data for the first half of 1995 illustrate the continued health of the commercial banking industry across all regions of the country. The average return on assets declined slightly to 1.13% nationally, but increased in the Southwest, West, and Central regions. This measure of profitability ranged from 0.99% in the Northeast to an impressive 1.41% in the Midwest.
