After more than five years, the Investigative Reporting Workshop has decided to make some changes in its Banktracker feature.
We still intend to provide quarterly banking and credit union data, based on reports from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. and the National Credit Union Administration. Today you'll find updated information from the first quarter of 2014 and can still search by bank and by credit union. Banktracker still is the only publicly available site that provides this data, and we believe it is an important public service.
However, given that the severity of the banking crisis has eased considerably since we began publishing Banktracker in March 2009, we have decided we will not be writing a quarterly analysis. We will continue to monitor the nation's financial institutions and if conditions warrant, we will write stories we think are important and newsworthy.
Banktracker has gained a significant audience over these five years, and we are grateful for this support. If you have comments or suggestions, please let us know.
