Press Release
For immediate release

November 4, 1993

Reports of 1992 mortgage lending activity in
metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) are available for public
inspection at a central depository in each MSA beginning this
week, the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council
(FFIEC) announced today.
These reports include individual disclosure statements
for each lender covered by the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act
(HMDA) in 1992 and aggregate data for all lenders in a given MSA.
The individual statements have been available from the reporting
institutions since August.
The HMDA reports of lending activity contain data on
the race, sex, and income level of borrowers and applicants and
data on home loan applications denied or withdrawn; they also
report data for originated and purchased loans.

Preliminary

analysis of data drawn from the national aggregates continues to
show significant differences in loan denial rates among racial
and ethnic groups.
The data for 1992 also show a significant increase in
the number of conventional home purchase loans extended to low-

income applicants.

The number of conventional home purchase

loans to high income applicants also increased, but at a more
modest rate.
Tables providing the nationwide aggregates and tables
showing key information for MSAs will be available from the FFIEC
later this week.

On Thursday, November 4, the Federal Reserve

Board and other agencies will present results from analysis of
the national aggregate data in testimony to be delivered before
the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs.
The 1992 disclosure statements report lending activity
for 9,073 institutions that submitted HMDA data to member
agencies of the FFIEC— the Comptroller of the Currency, the
Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Office of Thrift
Supervision, the National Credit Union Administration, and the
Federal Reserve System— and to the U.S. Department of Housing and
Urban Development.

For the second year, the total volume of

reported loans and applications increased more than 50 percent—
from 7.89 million in 1991 to 12.01 million in 1992.
refinancing activity fueled this increase.

Mortgage

During 1992

applications for refinancing increased by almost 150 percent over
1991 figures, reflecting the decline in mortgage interest rates.
Nearly 78 percent of the applications for home purchase loans
were for conventional mortgage loans, and the remainder were for
loans insured or guaranteed by the Federal Housing Administration
(FHA), the Veterans Administration (VA), or the Farmers Home
Administration (FmHA).




3

In 1992, lenders approved roughly 72.9 percent of
applications for conventional home purchase loans and 74.1
percent of the applications for government-backed home purchase
loans.

For refinancings, 77.7 percent of the applications were

approved.

The denial rate for conventional home purchase loans

and for refinancings both fell between 1991 and 1992.

The denial

rate dropped to 17.8 percent in 1992 from 18.9 percent in 1991.
For refinancings, the denial rate dropped to 12.4 percent in 1992
from 15.9 percent in 1991.

Denial rates also were slightly lower

in 1992 for applications for government-backed home purchase
loans and for home improvement loans.
HMDA DATA: PUBLIC ACCESS
The FFIEC makes the HMDA data publicly available in a
variety of formats.

Disclosure statements for individual

institutions and aggregate reports for each MSA are provided in
hard copy, microfiche, and computer tape.

An edited version of

loan application register (LAR) records for the nation are
available on data tape and PC diskette.
also be available on CD ROM.

These data soon will

Other formats include tables

showing nationwide aggregates and tables providing key
information for each MSA, which will be available later this
week.
Other HMDA reports available include a directory that
will list all HMDA reporters within an MSA, and include
information such as their location and asset size, as well as the
number of loans originated and the number of applications
received by state and county.




A three-report package provides

4
analyses of individual institutions* home-lending activity by
MSA, including:
o

disposition of loan applications by income and
race,

o

distribution of loan originations for home purchase
loans, home improvement loans and refinancings
within an MSA by racial and income characteristics
of the census tract, and

o

summaries of loan activity by census tract,
including the percentage of minority population,
the number of owner-occupied units, and the denial
rate.

The FFIEC's HMDA data order form is attached.

ITEM DESCRIPTIONS

Aggregation Report: The Aggregation Reports of USAs (340 for 1990, 341 for 1991 and 1992),
sorted by MSA, distributed as either hardcopy or on tape. Printed MSAs range from 30 to 604
pages each, with an average of approximately 60 pages. Tape distribution is used in lieu of
hardcopy as a convenience to those sites that can print the tape locally.
For hardcopy distribution, enter the MSA number for each MSA desired on the report in the
space provided on the form. If additional space is required, use the back of the form. The
charge for hardcopy distribution is $50.00 for each MSA requested.
(Item #002)
For tape distribution, all MSAs will be included on the tape.
Also, a listing will be
provided that shows the relative position and number of pages for each MSA on the tape. Data
will be in EBCDIC and formatted as follows: record length = 166; block size = 24,900; and
record format = fixed block.
Printing these records requires a printer featured for 165
character output. The charge for tape distribution is $500.00.
(Item #101)
Census Information: This is the nationwide census data that is used as input to HMDA
processing. Data is distributed as a hardcopy report or on tape. The hardcopy Census Tract

available on either reels or cartridges; file descriptions are included with each order. The
charge for hardcopy distribution is $50.00 (Item #003); for tape distribution, the charge is
$250.00 (Item #104).
It is important to note that 1980 census tracts have been used in processing 1990 and 1991
HMDA data; 1990 census tracts for processing beginning with 1992 HMDA data. The census data
distributed will be consistent with the HMDA year specified. For example, if HMDA year 1991
is selected, 1980 census tract data with 1991 MSA definitions will be issued.
Disclosure Statement;
The Disclosure Statement summarizes mortgage and home improvement
lending information from data that is prepared yearly by individual institutions. The
Disclosure Statement is distributed in hardcopy only at a cost of $50.00 for each institution

reporter ID and agency code, and the MSA number(s) of the metropolitan areas for which they
were expected to report. The panel is captured from the database at the same time that the
final disclosure and aggregate reports are prepared for the Central Depositories, usually in
October. The Expected Reporter Panel is distributed in reel or cartridge only at a cost of
$150.00. A format description is also included with each order.

home-improvement loams for each calendar year. LARs for 1990 total almost
6.6 million records and 9,332 Transmittal Sheets (TSs); the 1991 LARs data total over 7.9
million records and 9,359 TSs. The following should be noted:

(Item #102)
If reels are ordered, there will be four or five reels containing the LAR data and one reel
containing the TS data. If cartridges are ordered, there will be three or four cartridges
containing the LAR data and one containing the TS data.
(The number of reels/cartridges
containing LAR data will vary according to the year requested because of the volume of data) .
Note that both reels and cartridges containing LAR data will be multi-volume datasets. This
means that to process ALL of the LAR data, each of the reels or cartridges must be read
successively.
