The need for credit analysts depends on the state of the economy. When the economy is weak, fewer people apply for home, car, and business loans. Thus, fewer credit analysts will be needed to analyze these loan applications. In addition, growth in this occupation will be slowed by the increased use of computers. Many credit companies use computers to analyze applicant's financial information. This reduces the amount of work analysts must do before they prepare their reports. As a result, analysts can process more applications.
