New Data: U.S. - NIPA mortgage interest paid
Thursday, 18 May 2017 11:39 ET
By Elizabeth Felton
April 2017 -- Data Buffet now carries the NIPA series for "mortgage interest paid on owner- and tenant-occupied residential housing" and the associated interest rate (two new quarterly series from 1977).

Figures are U.S dollars (USD) or percent per annum (% p.a.), at seasonally adjusted annualized rates (SAAR). The series start at 1977Q1.

The series reside in the historical catalog (United States » National Accounts » Gross domestic product (NIPA) » Supplemental Estimates » Mortgage interest paid) and are:

  • MBLBEMIPAQ.IUSA = Banking: Mortgage interest paid - Owner- and tenant-occupied residential housing, (Mil. USD, SAAR)
  • IR%BEMERAQ.IUSA = Interest rates: Effective rate on mortgage debt outstanding - Owner- and tenant-occupied residential housing, (% p.a., SAAR)

Because catalog locations are subject to change, the upper-right search box on DataBuffet.com provides a "find in catalog" mode that accepts a mnemonic.

About the dataset:

  • Mortgage interest paid equals mortgage debt outstanding (FRB) times an effective rate of interest.
  • Excludes interest paid on mobile homes
