(202)634-6526 • FAX (202)634-6556 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data on the race, sex, and income level of borrowers and applicants and data on home loan applications denied or withdrawn; they also report data for originated and purchased loans.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- Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, National Credit Union Administration, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Office of Thrift Supervision 2 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.
