On October 19th, the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council ("FFIEC") announced that it will incorporate the 2010 American Community Survey data into the FFIEC-published census data file. The new methodology responds to a change in the way the U.S. Census Bureau collects information that is reflected in the FFIEC's census data. The FFIEC publishes census data as part of the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act ("HMDA") aggregate and disclosure data and as a separate census data file. The census data are used to provide context to HMDA and Community Reinvestment Act data. FFIEC Press Release.
