This indicator is an estimate of the share of children under age 18 who were living in a
household that entered foreclosure in 2007, 2008 or 2009. Children living in either
rental units or owner-occupied homes without a mortgage are not included
in this analysis.
Estimates were obtained as follows: First, estimates of the number of households entering foreclosure were acquired from the Mortgage Bankers Association's National Delinquency Survey (NDS) database. Because the NDS data covers about 85 percent of the real estate market, we adjusted the estimate of the total number of households entering foreclosure between 2007 and 2009 to account for the data's under-coverage. We then multiplied that estimate by the percentage of mortgaged households that had children, which yielded an estimate of the total households with children entering foreclosure. Finally, we multiplied that result by the average number of children per mortgaged household to get an estimate of the total number of children affected by foreclosure. When foreclosure information was not available by location, the aggregate total for all states was still reported. Therefore, the U.S. total does not equal the sum of the states' totals.
