FFIEC Releases 2018 HMDA Data

By The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC)

The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) released the 2018 Home Mortgage Disclosure Act data on mortgage lending transactions at 5,683 financial institutions. The data encompasses 12.9 million mortgage applications, 7.7 million of which resulted in loan originations. Of these, 10.3 million were the closed-end loans previously required to be reported under HMDA and 2.3 million were open-end loans, such as home equity lines of credit, now reported under expanded data collection requirements.

In releasing the data, the FFIEC agencies issued a clear statement of the limitations of publicly available HMDA data for fair lending examinations. “HMDA data alone cannot be used to determine whether a lender is complying with fair lending laws,” the statement said. “The data do not include some legitimate credit risk considerations for loan approval and loan pricing decisions.”
