Econintersect:  The U.S. Consumer Protection Bureau has issued a report about the 20% of U.S. households that have no access to traditional banking and credit services.  The study reviews the credit history data maintained by the three nationwide credit reporting agencies (NCRAs - Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion).  A fifth of the U.S. population is either missing from these records or has insufficient data to create a "credit score".  As a result these people face significant challenges in accessing most credit markets.  Who are these people?  They are disproportionately low-income, African-American and young.
