Dataset Card for Consumer Finance Complaints

Dataset Summary

This database is a collection of complaints about consumer financial products and services that we sent to companies for response.

The Consumer Complaint Database is a collection of complaints about consumer financial products and services that we sent to companies for response. Complaints are published after the company responds, confirming a commercial relationship with the consumer, or after 15 days, whichever comes first. Complaints referred to other regulators, such as complaints about depository institutions with less than $10 billion in assets, are not published in the Consumer Complaint Database. The database generally updates daily.

Complaints can give us insights into problems people are experiencing in the marketplace and help us regulate consumer financial products and services under existing federal consumer financial laws, enforce those laws judiciously, and educate and empower consumers to make informed financial decisions. We also report on complaint trends annually in Consumer Response’s Annual Report to Congress.

Data Fields

Field name Description Data Type
Date received The date the CFPB received the complaint date & time
Product The type of product the consumer identified in the complaint plain text This field is a categorical variable.
Sub-product The type of sub-product the consumer identified in the complaint plain text This field is a categorical variable. Not all Products have Sub-products.
Issue The issue the consumer identified in the complaint plain text This field is a categorical variable. Possible values are dependent on Product.
Sub-issue The sub-issue the consumer identified in the complaint plain text This field is a categorical variable. Possible values are dependent on product and issue. Not all Issues have corresponding Sub-issues.
Consumer complaint narrative Consumer complaint narrative is the consumer-submitted description of "what happened" from the complaint. Consumers must opt-in to share their narrative. We will not publish the narrative unless the consumer consents, and consumers can opt-out at any time. The CFPB takes reasonable steps to scrub personal information from each complaint that could be used to identify the consumer. plain text Consumers' descriptions of what happened are included if consumers consent to publishing the description and after we take steps to remove personal information.
Company public response The company's optional, public-facing response to a consumer's complaint. Companies can choose to select a response from a pre-set list of options that will be posted on the public database. For example, "Company believes complaint is the result of an isolated error." plain text Companies' public-facing responses to complaints are included if companies choose to publish one. Companies may select a public response from a set list of options as soon as they respond to the complaint, but no later than 180 days after the complaint was sent to the company for response.
Company The complaint is about this company plain text This field is a categorical variable.
State The state of the mailing address provided by the consumer plain text This field is a categorical variable.
ZIP code The mailing ZIP code provided by the consumer plain text Mailing ZIP code provided by the consumer. This field may: i) include the first five digits of a ZIP code; ii) include the first three digits of a ZIP code (if the consumer consented to publication of their complaint narrative); or iii) be blank (if ZIP codes have been submitted with non-numeric values, if there are less than 20,000 people in a given ZIP code, or if the complaint has an address outside of the United States). For example, complaints where the submitter reports the age of the consumer as 62 years or older are tagged, ‘Older American.’ Complaints submitted by or on behalf of a servicemember or the spouse or dependent of a servicemember are tagged, ‘Servicemember.’ Servicemember includes anyone who is active duty, National Guard, or Reservist, as well as anyone who previously served and is a Veteran or retiree.

Date sent to company The date the CFPB sent the complaint to the company date & time
Company response to consumer This is how the company responded. For example, "Closed with explanation." plain text This field is a categorical variable.

Discussion of Biases

This database is not a statistical sample of consumers’ experiences in the marketplace. Complaints are not necessarily representative of all consumers’ experiences and complaints do not constitute “information” for purposes of the Information Quality Act .

Complaint volume should be considered in the context of company size and/or market share. For example, companies with more customers may have more complaints than companies with fewer customers. We encourage you to pair complaint data with public and private data sets for additional context.

The Bureau publishes the consumer’s narrative description of his or her experience if the consumer opts to share it publicly and after the Bureau takes steps to remove personal information. We don’t verify all the allegations in complaint narratives. Unproven allegations in consumer narratives should be regarded as opinion, not fact. We do not adopt the views expressed and make no representation that consumers’ allegations are accurate, clear, complete, or unbiased in substance or presentation. Users should consider what conclusions may be fairly drawn from complaints alone.
