New York Stock Exchange data.
June data for banks are universe totals; all other data for banks represent estimates for all commercial banks based on reports by a reporting
sample, which accounted for 60 per cent of security credit outstanding at banks on June 30.

4

Nonmargin stocks are those not listed on a national securities exchange and not included on the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve
System's list of OTC margin stocks. At banks, loans to purchase or carry nonmargin stocks are unregulated; at brokers, such stocks have no

Seasonally adjusted data r e v i s e d due t o r e - e s t i m a t i o n of s e a s o n a l f a c t o r s .

Monthly data for commercial banks based on Federal Reserve estimates benchmarked to Call Report data on real estate loans outstanding as available. Other data derived from mortgage debt outstanding as reported separately by National Assn. of Mutual Savings Banks, Federal Home Loan
Bank Board, Institute of Life Insurance and, through August 1968, the Federal National Mortgage Association, and thereafter by FNMA and the
Government National Mortgage Association. Data for mutual savings banks and for Life Insurance companies may differ somewhat from those derived from regular quarterly series because of minor conceptual differences for which adjustments are not made in the monthly series. Altogether,
these groups accounted for 83 per cent of the net increase estimated for all holders in 1974.

2
Beginning January 1972 data reflect activity in limited amount of conventional mortgages.

NOTES:
1

Derived from data on mortgage debt outstanding from Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Federal Home Loan Bank Board, Institute of Life
Insurance, National Association of Mutual Savings Banks, Departments of Commerce and Agriculture, Federal National Mortgage Association,
Federal Housing Administration, Veterans Administration and Comptroller of the Currency. Separation of nonfarm mortgage debt by type of
property, where not available, and interpolations and extrapolations, where required, estimated mainly by Federal Reserve.

2

May differ somewhat from related flow of funds series mainly because of more aggregative type of seasonal adjustment.

3
Residential mortgage debt includes nonfarm only and is sum of 1 to 4- family and multifamily mortgage debt.

NOTES:

Gross yield spread is average mortgage return before deducting servicing costs, minus average yield on new issues of high-grade utility bonds with 5-year call protection.

Rates on conventional first mortgages (excluding additional fees and charges) are based on unweighted HUD (FHA) field office opinions on prevailing contract interest rates in the market areas
of the insuring offices, rounded to the nearest 5 basis points. For secondary market data, weighted HUD office opinions on the average bid price for HUD (FHA) loans with minimum down
payment, prepaid in 15 years, for immediate delivery, are used.

NOTES:
Average secondary market yields are gross before deduction of the fee of 38 basis points paid for mortgage servicing. They reflect the average accepted bid yield for home mortgages assuming a prepayment period of 12 years for 30-year loans, without special adjustment for Federal National
Mortgage Association (FNMA) commitment fees and FNMA stock purchase and holding requirements on 4-month commitments. Mortgage amounts
offered by bidders relate to total eligible bids received.
