Discrimination in Mortgage Lending: A Critical Review of the Literature

  • MICHAEL LaCOUR-LITTLE
Article

Abstract

This article surveys the diverse research that examines racial disparities in mortgage lending markets in the context of the fair housing legislation of recent decades. A review of the theoretical models, data, and empirical methods reveals deficiencies in all three areas. A new research agenda focusing on development of more complete models of mortgage lending together with panel data tracking mortgage loan performance over time is needed.
