RATA Releases FFIEC 2022 Demographics Phases 1 and 2

Added on April 26, 2022

As mentioned in previous articles, this year's release of the 2022 FFIEC demographic data is being released in phases because it is the first year of the 2020 Census data. On March 18th, the FFIEC released an article outlining the timeframe for the 2022 Demographic Data release (FFIEC Releases Timeline for 2022 Census and Demographic Data). On March 30th, the first phase of this data was released, relating to population counts derived from the ACS 5-Year Survey (2016-2020). Unfortunately, that release did not contain enough data to make it worth converting and releasing. That data contained the following fields: Small County Indicator Population (Total) Population (Minority) Minority Population (Percent) Population (Hispanic) Population (Non-Hispanic) Population (White) Population (Black)…

RATA Releases NON-OFFICIAL 2021 HMDA Peer Data

Added on March 29, 2022

As stated in the previous article (below), we have downloaded the individual 2021 Modified LAR data from the CFPB, combined it, reformatted it and merged it with last year's transmittal data for searchability. We have tested to make sure the numbers look reasonable and believe them to be correct for now, but there are normally resubmissions and changes to the "official" data that is usually released by the CFPB in June. This data can be downloaded from the RATA Support Site. Note to RHS Users: There is no action that needs to be taken on your RHS system. The temporary peer data is available in RATA Hosted Services (RHS). Important: There was an increase in the HMDA volume this year and there are now over 26 million applications and the data and will be over 16G added to your Comply…

FFIEC Releases Timeline for 2022 Census and Demographic Data

Added on March 18, 2022

On March 18th, the FFIEC published an alert regarding the 2022 Census and Demographic Data availability. The alert states that due to various delays, including those related to the ongoing pandemic, the release of the data for CRA and HMDA purposes was not available as planned. It further specifies a rough timeline as to when to expect each piece of the full dataset. The text from the FFIEC alert follows: Due to delays with multiple products from the U.S. Census Bureau, the FFIEC has faced challenges in releasing the 2022 FFIEC Census products. In order to respond to user needs, the FFIEC will release the various FFIEC Census products in a sequential manner as the data become available. Using the Census Redistricting Data released on August 12, 2021, the FFIEC will release a limited flat…

FFIEC Releases CRA Peer, Performance Evaluation, and Market Share Data

Added on December 23, 2021

The CRA Peer, Performance Evaluation, and Market Share data are now available for use in Comply. The 2020 CRA Aggregate and Disclosure data, used for CRA Peer analysis, was released on Tuesday, December 21. This year, like the last couple of years, there was a major delay in the release of this data. This data used to be released within a month or so of the HMDA peer data, which was released on June 17, 2021. Although it is extremely late from the government, RATA has completed the process of converting the data for use in Comply. The name of this file is PEERCRA20. The peer data always needs to be manually downloaded from the RATA Support Site and imported into Comply, using the Import System Data function, as these files are very large in size. For this reason, we recommend that you…
