Q3 Mortgage Employment Index Down, Wisconsin Leads

DALLAS -- (Jan. 25, 2016)
Wisconsin led a quarterly contraction in mortgage staffing, though nearby Michigan had a healthy gain.

At the end of the third-quarter 2015, there were an estimated 644,300 people who were employed in mortgage-related positions.

That was based on a Mortgage Daily analysis of government data and origination market share.

Total industry headcount declined from the second quarter, when it was an estimated 646,100.

It grew, though, from the third-quarter 2014, when the total was an estimated 630,200.

The Sept. 30, 2015, total consisted of an estimated 284,600 mortgage jobs at banks, 60,000 home lending employees at credit unions and 299,700 people working at non-bank mortgage firms.
