The years of credit is reported from information provided by Transunion.  Other credit accounts any of us have may be reported to Equifax and/or Experian, and they usually don't report to Transunion.

This is not a big problem because many potential creditors get the credit score they want from myfico,com, which calculates score in a different manner.
