NEW YORK—As part of a new initiative to examine communities in more detail and enable locational comparisons, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York today released an interactive tool that provides information about home prices, distressed sales, delinquencies and foreclosures at the national, state and county levels. Users can also view the housing-related categories over time (from 2006 to present) and compare categories across all three geographic levels.
The data are expected to be updated twice a year. The New York Fed also plans to release additional interactive tools that profile community access to and use of traditional credit. The profiles will enable peer comparisons and benchmarking of the impact of community programs and activities.
This project builds on the New York Fed’s ongoing work to provide policymakers, community and business leaders with information and analysis on financial conditions for households and small businesses.
