Chart of the Day: How Often Are Credit Card Applications Rejected?

From Federal Reserve:

Answer:  13.5% in June 2015.  Note that this rate will likely be much higher for millenials who may have lower credit scores due to their short credit histories.  Interesting to note the sharp decline in rejection rate in the most recent reporting period as lenders seem to be loosening their standards.
