Abstract

•A novel measure of systemic risk using mapping and regression methods is proposed.•Default probabilities for U.S. banks are aggregated into a single macro measure.•Our measure has predictive power to detect systemic volatility prior to the 2008–09 crisis.•According to our measure, systemic risk returned to normal levels by 2012.•Micro- and macro-prudential measures are useful in assessing systemic risk.
