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 companiesmay
rived 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.

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.

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 mdrtgages (excluding additional fees end 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, prepeid in 15 years, for immediate delivery/are used.
