Subprime facts: what (we think) we know about the subprime crisis and what we don’t

No 08-2, Public Policy Discussion Paper from Federal Reserve Bank of Boston

Abstract: Using a variety of datasets, we document some basic facts about the current subprime crisis. Many of these facts are applicable to the crisis at a national level, while some illustrate problems relevant only to Massachusetts and New England. We conclude by discussing some outstanding questions about which the data, we believe, are not yet conclusive.
