The Deterrent Effects of Media Accounts and HUD Enforcement on Racial Disparities in Loan Denial Rate
This project combines data on HUD enforcement activities and information on media accounts on allegations of discrimination in mortgage lending with HMDA loan application records for 1994–2003 to test the hypothesis that public and private enforcement efforts reduce lending discrimination. This project uses the BSCL.
