Credit Limit Calculations?

I'm not sure if this has been asked before, but I searched and couldn't find an answer.  So here goes:
 
How do CCC's determine how much credit they will grant you.  I am sure they all vary to some degree, but does anyone have a general idea of how this is done?
 
 
Thanks in advance!Smiley Happy

The three C's: Character, Capacity and Capital are huge!
 
 
1.) FICO scores, not FAKOs
2.) Payment history with CCs (character)
3.) Income (capacity)
4.) Debt to income
5.) Own property? (capital)
7.) They determine if you're a revolver or a PIF deadbeat
6.) They determine how much they can profit from you! This might be the most important  factor!Smiley Happy
 
There are other factors but I think these are the major ones.
