The Uniform Appraisal Dataset (UAD) aggregate statistics will now be released quarterly.

​​​​The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) said recently it has published its 2022 third-quarter data for the Uniform Appraisal Data (UAD) Aggregate Statistics Data File.

The UAD Aggregate Statistics Data File and Dashboards — the nation’s first publicly available dataset and tools for aggregate statistics on appraisal records — will now be released quarterly, the FHFA said.

“Publishing transparent, aggregate data on appraisals provides useful information to the public and is a means to achieving the agency's strategic goal of fostering housing finance markets that promote equitable access to affordable and sustainable housing,” Director Sandra L. Thompson said.

Thompson said the data release reinforces FHFA’s commitment to “working with its stakeholders in bringing about a more equitable valuation system that deters appraisal bias in minority neighborhoods across the nation, both in rural and metropolitan areas. We continue to evaluate ways to release new data in a way that does not compromise borrower privacy.”

FHFA also launched a new “Top 100 Metro Areas Dashboard. The dashboards are visual “front ends” into the aggregate statistics, displaying the aggregate statistics through customized maps and charts, the agency said. 

The dashboards provide the public with “user-friendly visualizations and access to a broad set of data points and trends found in appraisal reports,” FHFA said.

Information about the UAD Aggregate Statistics Data File and the dashboards is available here.
