A credit report provides an individual's credit history, including their credit score. This tag is to be used for questions related to overall credit report, of which credit score is just one part. Related tags are credit-history.

A credit report lists the credit score, number of open or closed credit accounts, whether those accounts are paid on a timely basis or not, closed accounts, any recent "hard inquiries" for additional credit, any legal judgements e.g. for wage garnishment or personal bankruptcy, and sometimes a list of current and past employers. A credit report provides both the credit score and the credit history.
