Credit unions in western states continued leading the nation in asset and membership growth last year, accounting for more than one in four new members.

Alaska, Arizona, California, Guam, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington had 23.4 million members as of Sept. 30, an increase of 5.4%, or 1.2 million members, in the previous 12 months. Membership rose 3.6% to 88 million in the other four NCUA regions.
