The National Mortgage Database (NMDB®) is a nationally representative five percent sample of residential mortgages in the United States. Publication of aggregate data from NMDB is a step toward implementing the statutory requirements of section 1324(c) of the Federal Housing Enterprises Financial Safety and Soundness Act of 1992, as amended by the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008. The statute requires FHFA to conduct a monthly mortgage market survey to collect data on the characteristics of individual mortgages, both Enterprise and non-Enterprise, and to make the data available to the public while protecting the privacy of the borrowers.
