The identifying information concerns the consumer’s name, address, Social Security number, date of birth, and employment data. The inquiries are not viewable to credit grantor.
Trade lines consist of all account activity reported by lender such as: account activity reported; beginning date of account; highest balance; current balance; identifying revolving credit and installment loans and indicating whether the account is current or delinquent.
The public record and collection items concern judgments, liens, collection items and bankruptcies. Collection items may also be identified in trade lines.

These indicators should be evaluated in relationship to severity, recency and frequency.
