Margin debt, as reported by the New York Stock Exchange. Although margin debt
until March 1968 included loans secured by U.S. governments, the amount of suchloans included is thought to have been small.
"Bank loans to others than brokers and dealers for purchasing or carrying securities other than U.S. governments."
The difference between customers' net debit balances and customers net free credit balances, this figure represents the net credit extended by brokers and
dealers to the nonfinancial public. NOTE: With the exception of bank loan data,
figures are supplied by the New York Stock Exchange and are end of month data.
Bank loans are for weekly reporting large commercial banks.

Total starts are Census estimates including farm for both permit-issuing and
non-issuing areas. A dwelling unit is started when excavation begins; all units
in an apartment structure are considered started at that time. FHA and Va
starts are units started under commitments by these agencies to insure or guarantee the mortgages. As reported by FHA and VA, a unit is started when a field
office receives the first compliance inspection report, which is made before
footings are poured in some cases but normally after the foundations have been
completed. Capehart military housing units are excluded. Other starts are
derived as a residual, although total and FHA and VA starts are not strictly
comparable in concept or timing; other starts include-both units financed by conventional mortgages and units without mortgages.
Building permits before January 1963 are Census estimates for about 10,000 areas
identified as having a local building permit system in 1959. Estimates beginning
January 1963, are for approximately 12,000 and beginning January 1967 13,000, or
all. known permit-issuing places. Unlike starts, seasonally adjusted building permits reflect direct adjustment for differences in the number of working days per
month, as well as other differences in timing and coverage;

Neither mortgage nor bond yields take into account servicing costs which are
much higher for mortgages than bonds. Generally, bonds pay interest semiannually; mortgages, monthly. Mortgage yields, if computed as equivalent to
a semi-annual interest investment, would be slightly higher than given in the
table.
2
Based on FHA-field-office opinions about average bid prices in the private
secondary market for new-home mortgages for immediate delivery. Separate
data available for 25-year and--beginning July 1961--30-year mortgages with
minimum downpayments, weighted by probable volume of transactions. Yields
computed by FHA, assuming prepayment period of 12 years for 25-year mortgages
and 15 years for 30-year mortgages. Over the period for which they can be
compared, the movement of the two mortgage yield series has been similar.
Dashed.lines indicate periods of adjustment to changes in contractual interest
rates.
3
Based_on FHA-field-office opinion on typical interest rates (rounded) pn conventional first mortgages prevailing in the market areas of insuring office
cities. Beginning with April 1960, rate relates only to new-home mortgages;
prior to that date, rate related to both new as well as existing-home mortgages. Dashed line indicates this change in the series.
;
4 . FHA mortgage yield data are for 25-year mortgages through June 1961; 30-year
mortgages thereafter.

Compiled by Federal Home Loan Bank Board in cooperation with Federal Deposit Insurance
Corporation. Data are weighted averages based on probability sample survey of characteristics of conventional first mortgages originated by major institutional lender
groups, (including mortgage companies) for purchase of single family homes. Data exclude loans for refinancing, reconditioning, or modernization; construction loans to
home-builders; and--in this exhibit--permanent loans which ;are coupled with construction
loans to owner-builders. Data prior to 1965 on a comparable basis with the new series
are pending. Related series on conventional mortgage rates only, based on unweighted
opinions of regional-office directors of the Federal Housing Administration, are available somewhat sooner than the results of the FHLBB-FDIC survey, and are included-in the
case, of new home mortgage rates--in Table 16.

2

Fees and charges--expressed as a percentage of the principal mortgage amount--include
loan commissions, fees, discounts, and other charges which provide added income to the
lender and are paid by the borrower. They exclude any closing costs related solely to
transfer of property ownership.

3

Includes fees & charges amortized over a 10 year period in addition to the contract
interest rate.
