During 2008, Syracuse University Library acquired several data sets of potential interest to SU researchers who are researching the current financial situation. Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) data, 2000-2007, which comprises every mortgage application made in the United States, and Government Sponsored Enterprises data, which includes all mortgages purchased by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, 1993-2006, are now available via the web.
The data for New York are available for online statistical analysis and data for the entire country are available for extract and downloading at: http://library.syr.edu/information/mgi/nds/resources/. Updated data will be added as it becomes available.
