The New York Fed today updated and expanded its Regional Mortgage Conditions utility, an interactive online graphic that provides mortgage delinquency and foreclosure information for the tri-state area. The graphic now includes data through March of 2012 and zip code level information for New York City and Hudson, Essex and Union counties in New Jersey.
The updated utility allows users to look at foreclosure rates as well as 60 day and 90+ day mortgage delinquency rates in these zip codes. Data for these areas were previously displayed only at the county level.
Additionally, zip codes are now ranked by foreclosure and delinquency rates, allowing users to compare conditions within regions. The tool also features animated timelines tracking the delinquency and foreclosure changes from January 2007 to March 2012 for the tri-state area by county, and by zip code for New York City, Northern Jersey and Long Island.
Regional Mortgage Conditions will continue to be updated as more information becomes available.

Time series data is presented on a set of chloropleth maps representing the Second District (by county), New York City, Long Island and northern New Jersey (by zip code). Shapefiles for these two geographic regions were converted into SVG graphics and rendered for the browser using the RaphaelJS library, resulting in a web native visualization that does not require plug-ins and runs on all iOS devices.
