LISC Foreclosure Risk Scores
This composite measure combines data elements that are predictive of foreclosures or neighborhood destabilization. ZIP Code level scores are available for download:
Note: Census tract level foreclosure risk scores can be mapped using the HMDA high-cost loans data tool below.
HMDA High-Cost Purchase Loans
These data include (1) an indicator comparing the number of high-cost home purchase loans in a given area with the number of 1-4 family housing units in the area and (2) an indicator that uses data on high-cost loans for properties that are not owner-occupied to identify areas where renters in 1-4 unit properties may be vulnerable to foreclosure-related evictions. Maps are also available for HUD's NSP3 Foreclosure Needs Scores and for the census tract level LISC foreclosure risk scores.
