You will develop and maintain statistical/econometric models to support policy making and supervision. Topics include consumer/borrower behavior, credit risk, mortgage and housing market dynamics, and institution behavior. This work will support housing programs, risk-based capital, house-price indexes, financial institutions and markets, secondary mortgage market operations, and emerging risks in housing finance.
