Notes on mortgage application data:

Indexes are adjusted for seasonal variations. The changes in percentages for these indexes and the
difference in the mortgage rate are compared with the previous week. The
Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) survey, which has been done every week since
1990, includes more than 75% of all home loan applications in the U.S. People
who take part in this survey include mortgage bankers, commercial banks, and
savings institutions
