Last year, we released a web-based tool that provides the public with easier access to mortgage data for 2007 through 2012. Today, we’re updating the database with 2013 data, in coordination with the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council .

What’s HMDA?

The Home Mortgage Disclosure Act or HMDA requires many financial institutions to maintain, report, and publicly disclose information about mortgages. HMDA data for 2013 included approximately 17 million records from 7,190 financial institutions.

Get started

If you’re new to HMDA data, start with our introductory video. You’ll learn about the data, how it’s collected, why it’s useful, and what variables it contains. Then, check out our maps and charts.

Explore the data and do your own analyses. You can start with our suggested filters, and then customize them to fit your needs. Use the summary tables to compare data across state, loan type, and more. Want a chart? You can create a summary table and then download it to create a chart using your favorite software.

Share your findings

We’re excited to see what you do, and encourage you to explore the data. Leave us a comment with your ideas or use #cfpbdata on Twitter to share what you find.

Due to technical issues, the commenting feature of our blog is temporarily unavailable. We’re working to bring this functionality back, and look forward to hearing your feedback and comments about the CFPB’s work soon.
