A diverse services portfolio saved Equifax from experiencing the credit crunch blues of its rival Experian.  Strong gains from international operations and commercial credit information, and the effects of the TALX acquisition, offset declining revenues in consumer information solutions. For the full year 2007, revenue increased 19 percent to $1.84 billion compared to 2006.  Operating income grew 11 percent to $486.2 million.  Diluted EPS was $2.02 compared to $2.12 for the full year 2006.    Source: Company Press Release
