The Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA): Loan Application Register (LAR) and Transmittal Sheet (TS) Raw Data, 2008 contains information collected in calendar year 2007. The HMDA, enacted by Congress in 1975, requires most mortgage lenders located in metropolitan areas to report data about their housing-related lending activity. The HMDA data were collected from 8,610 lending institutions and cover approximately 26.6 million home purchase and home improvement loans and refinancings, including loan originations, loan purchases, and applications that were denied, incomplete or withdrawn. The Private Mortgage Insurance Companies (PMIC) data refer to applications for mortgage insurance to insure home purchase mortgages and to insure mortgages to refinance existing obligations. Part 1, HMDA Transmittal Sheet (TS), and Part 4, PMIC Transmittal Sheet (TS), include information submitted by reporting institutions with the Loan Application Register (LAR), such as the reporting institution's name, address, and Tax ID. Part 2, HMDA Reporter Panel, and Part 5, PMIC Reporter Panel, contain information on all institutions that reported data in activity year 2007. Part 3, HMDA MSA Offices, and Part 6, PMIC MSA Offices, contain information on all metropolitan statistical areas in the data. Parts 7 through 794 contain HMDA and PMIC Loan Application Register (LAR) files at the national level, at the agency level, and by MSA/MD. With some exceptions, for each transaction the institution reported data about the loan (or application), such as the type and amount of the loan made (or applied for) and, in limited circumstances, its price, the disposition of the application, such as whether it was denied or resulted in an origination of a loan, the property to which the loan relates, such as its type (single-family versus multi-family), and location (including the census tract), the sale of the loan, if it was sold, and the applicant's and co-applicant's ethnicity, race, sex, and income.

For datasets 7 through 794, ICPSR is releasing the original deposited data files in the condition they were received, along with SPSS, Stata, and SAS setup files.

The data file for Part 7, HMDA Loan Application Register (LAR): National File, contains over 26 million records. Due to its large size, users are encouraged to open this dataset in SAS.

All Census tract, county definitions, and population counts were based on the 2000 Census of Population and Housing. Value labels for the variable STATE_CODE were added based on FIPS state and county codes located in United States Census 2000 TIGER/Line Files.

Although most home-secured loans are included in HMDA data, the reporting of some home equity lines of credit (HELOCs) was optional. Additionally, not all mortgage lenders are HMDA reporters. For example, a lender does not have to report HMDA data unless it has an office in a metropolitan statistical area (MSA). As a result, reporting of home loans made in some rural areas may be relatively low. For more details on reporting requirements in 2008, please refer to Home Mortgage Disclosure Act Web site.

More information about HMDA data can be found at Home Mortgage Disclosure Act Web site. A glossary of terms used in the data can be found at Home Mortgage Disclosure Act Glossary.

HMDA data were collected from 8,610 depository and nondepository institutions that were required to report HMDA data if they met the law's criteria for coverage. Generally, whether a lender is covered by HMDA depended on the lender's asset size, its location, and whether it is in the business of residential mortgage lending. PMIC data were collected from eight mortgage insurance companies that insured home purchase mortgages and to insure mortgages to refinance existing obligations. For more information about how respondents reported, please refer to A Guide to HMDA Reporting.

2016-12-12 The study title and collection dates have been revised to reflect the 2007 activity year, with data reported in 2008. The summary and collection notes have been updated to reflect the correct number of cases and datasets. Datasets 1 through 6 and the multi-part setup files will also be replaced to correct the study year. Variable descriptions for parts 1 through 6 have been incorporated into the ICPSR Codebooks; "Frequencies" documents that were included in previous releases have been retired with this update.

2011-06-03 ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:

  • Created variable labels and/or value labels.
  • Created online analysis version with question text.

The data are not weighted and do not contain any weight variables.

Notes

  • Data in this collection are available only to users at ICPSR member institutions.
