Our new analysis found lending disparities grew in the Chicago region in 2020. Overall, we found, loan volume increased mostly due to refinance loans. Research Associate Natalie Cheng led our presentation on findings and demonstrated the latest iteration of the data portal and fact book.

Our Research Team will review the findings, share what we’re learning and working on based on the data, and welcome your feedback on the data portal at our Fact Book 2020 Data Edition virtual brown bag.

The 2020 Data Edition is freely available as a PDF download, online with customization features at woodstockinst.org/data-portal or contact our office to request a free print copy (while supplies last).

Please let us know if you have a specific question you’d like us to address in the Questions and Comments section below. You can also view the presentation on YouTube.
