* Data is compiled for the Joplin, MO commuting zone area, which comprises of counties of Bourbon County, KS, Cherokee County, KS, Crawford County, KS, Jasper County, MO, and Newton County, MO. This includes cities/towns/communities of Joplin, MO as well as Neosho, MO, Webb City, MO, Carthage, MO, Pittsburg, KS, Carl Junction, MO, Oronogo, MO, Jasper, MO, Airport Drive, MO, Loma Linda, MO, Dennis Acres, MO, Diamond, MO, Fort Scott, KS, Silver Creek, MO, Duquesne, MO, Newtonia, MO, Reeds, MO, Columbus, KS, Seneca, MO, Baxter Springs, KS, Riverton, KS, Mulberry, KS, Fairview, MO, Girard, KS, Galena, KS, Chicopee, KS, Cherokee, KS, Roseland, KS, Mapleton, KS, Uniontown, KS, and West Mineral, KS. Lenders must have made at least 30 loans in the area to be included. Source of the data is Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC). Rate Difference (the average difference of interest rates relative to those of other lenders) were computed by subtracting the rate at origination from the average predicted rate conditional on the commuting zone, borrower LTV, DTI, Loan Amount, Loan Type, and Loan Purpose, and then regularized based on a Bayesian approach to account for smaller sample sizes. Above-average mortgage closing costs were then added to the rate difference at a rate of +0.15/point. Star ratings were determined in intervals of 0.10% in rate difference per half star.
