Update to BISG Proxy Methodology in Comply (Based on CFPB Updates)

As of April 2017, the CFPB has updated their BISG methodology. There are two things that have changed and RATA will handle the changes in two phases. The first and biggest change is that they have started to use the 2010 Census name table whereas up until now it was the 2000 Census name table (see details of counts below). This change increased the number of surnames in the table by about 10% and in running tests it seemed to reduce the Surname Not Found rate by about 10%, so it is a pretty significant improvement. The new name table has been created and tested for Comply and will be released via Auto-Updates today. For clients not using Auto-Updates for system data the file will also be available on the support site. The second update to the BISG process is much less significant but will…

2018 HMDA Changes with Video and Beta Version Available (Updated)

As promised, we are releasing a special beta version of Comply 17, so that institutions can get a handle on where RATA is at with the changes and begin testing imports with the new data elements, if they are at that point. For those of you that just need to make sure RATA is on top of the changes, we have included a video that illustrates the new fields and imports to show you that it is implemented and works great. We have gone from 40 fields to 110 submittable fields so data collection will be a fun process. For those of you not familiar with the field changes and values, please download the 2018 File Specifications at https://www.consumerfinance.gov/data-research/hmda/static/for-filers/2018/2018-HMDA-FIG.pdf. The government has still not released the 2018 Edit Checks so really all…

Comply 16.1 Release

We are finalizing and QA testing our Comply 16.1 release and should have it ready by February 17th.We have made many improvements to DataMine and Audit that we had wanted to add from the beginning, but simply didn't have time to get into version 16. We have also made changes to the way we store Geographic Areas and Peer groups to better deal with multiple years in preparation for multi-year analysis in the future. In addition, we are adding new Business and Farm demographics to help with evaluating Performance Evaluation data. The RATA Business and Farm census data will now help institutions look at their business and farm lending and compare their it to the percentages of all businesses in their areas broken down by low/mod/middle/upper income areas. This data is not based on D&B…

Update on Changes for 2018

Update on Changes for 2018

It's been a little while since we posted an update on our progress regarding the 2018 changes. There hasn't been a lot of additional information released by the CFPB regarding those changes in the last 6 months. We were hoping that they would have released the edit check specifications by now, but that hasn't happened as far as we know. Since our last update, we have had many internal meetings about various ways to deal with the pending changes. We have come up with what we believe is an even better way to deal with the new data in Comply but it will take a little longer to implement. We feel the benefits outweigh a slight delay in release, and we just wanted to keep you up to date. The new release date for the import testing version of Comply 17 is now scheduled for April 2, 2017. One of…
