To assess the inclusiveness of the banking system, and in partial fulfilment of a statutory responsibility, the FDIC conducts biennial surveys of households to estimate the proportion of households that do not fully participate in the banking system. The second FDIC National Survey of Unbanked and Underbanked Households presents new data and insights on the size of unbanked and underbanked markets at the national, regional, state, and large metropolitan statistical area (MSA) levels.

Sponsored by the FDIC, the survey was conducted in June 2011 by the U.S. Census Bureau as a supplement to its Current Population Survey (CPS). Similar to the methodology in the inaugural report, the FDIC uses survey responses to categorize household banking status into three categories: unbanked, underbanked, and fully-banked. The Census Bureau surveyed approximately 54,000 households, and about 44,900 (84 percent) participated in the FDIC-sponsored supplement survey.
