In contemporary world majority of the households depend on credits form intermediaries to purchase the primary residence, cars, or other durables. Yet, not every household has a possibility to finance its purchase via credit due to subjective perception of its financial capabilities and other socio-demographic factor or due to the objective credit constrains identified in the past by the intermediaries (usually in the period of last 2-5 years). Such constrained households are observed in the Household Finance and Consumption Survey (HFCS) and the U.S. Survey of Consumer Finance (SCF). Unfortunately, we do not know from these surveys whether or not a household was objectively credit constrained at the time of wealth reference, because not every household had a possibility of being evaluated during the wealth reference by the intermediary in terms of credit capabilities. We aim to model a credit-score for each household by imitating the major creditors' practices using available information from HFCS and SCF microdata. Having the estimated creditworthiness together with observable credit constraints from the surveys would allow us to identify households that have misperception of their financial ability in terms of receiving a credit. Such overconfidence or underconfidence of households in terms of credit capabilities could influence their well-being. This project aims to investigate the implications of credit over- or underconfidence for households economic well-being (i.e. risk of falling into socio-economic deprivation or overconsumption and excessive use of credit that might impact household’s future financial situation) from the comparative perspective using HFCS and SCF data. We simply regress subjective credit constraint on estimated credit score and use residuals as a measure of overconfidence/underconfidence.
