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 d e b t .

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.
