Many mortgage companies who went bankrupt in 2007 and failed to disclose their 2007 Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) data. These same mortgage lenders originated a significant amount of new mortgages in 2007 until they closed down business operations. Researchers in residential finance use HMDA data to analyze mortgage lending activity. When using the 2007 HMDA data, researchers will need to make adjustments in their analysis to account for the significant quantity of mortgage activity that is missing from the data.

Some examples of bankrupt mortgage institutions who did not report their 2007 data are provided here along with the metropolitan areas where their loans were originated.
