FFIEC announces availability of 2019 mortgage lending data
The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) announced the availability of data on 2019 mortgage lending transactions at 5,508 U.S. financial institutions covered by the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA). Covered institutions include banks, savings associations, credit unions and mortgage companies.
The HMDA data are the most comprehensive publicly available information on mortgage market activity. They are used by industry, consumer groups, regulators, and others to assess potential fair lending risks and for other purposes.
The FFIEC releases today several data products to serve a variety of data users:
- The HMDA Dynamic National Loan-Level Dataset is updated, on a weekly basis, to reflect late submissions and resubmissions;
- Aggregate and Disclosure Reports provide summary information on individual financial institutions and geographies;
- The HMDA Data Browser allows users to create custom tables and download datasets that can be further analyzed;
- In addition, beginning in late March 2020, the FFIEC made available Loan/Application Registers for each HMDA filer of 2019 data, modified to protect borrower privacy.
