2018 Oregon and Oregon Metro HMDA Data Download Links.

2018 HMDA data has moved from the CFPB website to the much less user friendly FFIEC website. 

The ability to customize data downloads is now limited to 2 variables and many of the values in the data fields now use codes instead of (understandable) names. 

To help users get started with CSV downloads I constructed the PDF HERE, and embedded below, that has links to CSV download pages for the state of Oregon and each metro area. (Note that the Portland metro data will include Clark and Skamania county in Washington state).

Two types of data links are available:
  • ALL Loan applications
  • ONLY approved loan applications
Users should be able to click on the link address in the PDF, but if that doesn't work, copy and paste should. (Download the PDF file if necessary).  [Downloading and clever editing of my web links would allow replication of statewide and metro links for other states]. 

The FFIEC HMDA data dictionary for 2018 is HERE.
