The Consumer Financial Decisions (CFD) group's Products and Services Analysis Volume for the 2004–05 MacroMonitor program covers the full range of retail and institutional household financial products and services. The five major sections correspond to the five basic financial needs: transactions, savings and investments, credit, protection, and information and advice. Each section presents information about products and services that serve one of those basic financial needs. The product subsections provide key product statistics, executive summaries, and analysis of survey results using CFD's proprietary Age Cohort, Socioeconomic Level, and Life Stage segmentation schemes (see Appendix F for segment definitions). We also include a Balance Sheets section summarizing, among other elements, U.S. households' assets, liabilities, and net worth. Where comparable, we include data from the 2000–01 and 2002–03 MacroMonitors.

For the convenience of our clients, the 2004–05 MacroMonitor Products and Services Analysis Volume was published in stages as a series of interim reports. Now that the final interim report has been produced, the complete Products and Services Analysis Volume has been compiled and is available to clients in both a single PDF document and broken down into sections as originally published (see links below).
