On September 22, 2014 the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) announced the availability of data on mortgage lending transactions at 7,190 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 cover 2013 lending activity, and include applications, originations, purchases and sales of loans, denials, and other actions related to applications.

The data also include disclosure statements for each financial institution, aggregate data for each metropolitan statistical area (MSA), nationwide summary statistics regarding lending patterns, and Loan/Application Registers (LARs) for each financial institution (LARs are modified to protect borrower privacy).


Now is the time to get busy and analyze all of that HMDA data.


Financial institution disclosure statements, individual institutions’ LAR data, and MSA and nationwide aggregate reports are available here.
