Panel Data on U.S. National Banks Balance Sheets (1867-1904)

Sample Page

Starting on 1867, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency has prepared Annual Reports to the U.S. Congress with the balance sheets of all U.S. National Banks (equivalent to our current Call Reports).

Using OCR methods and exploiting double-entry bookkeeping of balance sheets to verify the accuracy of the results, we have digitized the records for all national banks between 1867 and 1904 (roughly 110,000 balance sheets).

For a brief discussion on the methods used, also see this excerpt from our slides.
