Data Background

The Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) requires lending institutions to make annual public disclosures of their home mortgage and home improvement lending activity. Disclosures are publicly available not only at the institutions' own offices, and also online through the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council website. Available HMDA data includes national and local aggregate reports, as well as loan-level data files from the universe of eligible depository and nondepository lending institutions nationwide. The HMDA loan-level flat files for 2014 consist of nearly 12 million records which contain quantitative and descriptive information about each loan and loan applicant, including the purpose of the loan and the action taken by the lending agency. More information is available through the FFEIC's Home Mortgage Disclosure Act web page.
