RATA Releases NON-OFFICIAL 2020 HMDA Peer Data

Added on April 7, 2021

As stated in the previous article (below), we have devised a way to pull the individual 2020 Modified LAR data from the CFPB, combine it, reformat it and merge it with last year's transmittal data for searchability. We have tested to make sure the numbers look reasonable and believe them to be correct for now, but there are normally resubmissions and changes to the "official" data that is usually released by the CFPB in June. Important: There was a major increase in the HMDA volume this year and there are now 25 million applications and the data and will be over 15G added to your Comply database. On our servers it took about an hour and a half to load this data. Based on the facts that it is not "official" and it is huge you may want to wait until June to do your analysis. In the end it…

RATA End of Year Geocode ReDo file: Please apply before submitting

Added on February 2, 2021

Thank you as always for using the RATA Comply software and Geocoding services to help with your HMDA and/or CRA submissions. As part of our efforts to ensure that you have the highest quality and most current geocode results for submission, we re-geocode every address that was submitted prior to February. We go through the file to look for improvements to any geocodes based on the precision codes and then return any improved results in the Year-End (YE) geocode update file. This file should be applied to your Comply system at your earliest convenience to assure that these improved results are a part of your submission. The YE update file will only affect records submitted before February. If you have submitted more geocoding after that date, those records will have already been geocoded…

FFIEC Releases CRA Peer Data

Added on December 16, 2020

UPDATE: The CRA Peer, Performance Evaluation and Market Share data is now available and can be downloaded from the support site. The 2019 CRA Aggregate and Disclosure data, used for CRA Peer analysis, was finally released on Monday, December 14. This year, like the last, there was a major delay in the release of this data for some undisclosed reason. Due to the smaller volume of this data, we typically see it released a month or so prior to the HMDA data, which was released August 30. We have completed the process of converting the data for use in Comply, Comply Peer2Peer and DataMine. The name of this file is PEERCRA19. The CRA Performance Evaluation table data was also compiled and has already been released through Auto-Updates and posted to the RATA Support Website. The name of this…

Comply 20.01 Now Available

Added on December 10, 2020

Since the release of Comply 20.0 in late October, a few changes have been made that can affect your Comply experience. A fix to correct filtering made just prior to the release of Comply 20.0 inadvertently broke the Quick Set functionality. While there was a workaround for that using Global Set, the bigger issue was that it affected Automation in Fair Lending. Secondly, an issue surfaced where creating Peer HMDA entities using institutions with identical names was causing a duplication error. Lastly, just yesterday, the FFIEC published edit changes to CRA for the 2020 reporting year. While the edits do not affect submittable records, we took this opportunity to get them into the Comply 20.01 update. If your institution is interested in any of these changes or you have not installed the…
