6Charge-Off RatesNumeric (Percent)%Note: Charge-off rate for the year is defined as the bad debts written off during the year divided by the average rollover balance for the same year. As monthly charge-off rates tend to be too volatile, we have chosen to publish quarterly charge-off rates instead. However, there can still be seasonal variations. The quarterly charge-off rate is calculated by annualising the ratio obtained from dividing the bad debts written off for the quarter by the average rollover balance for the same quarter.
