Mobile carriers cut off flow of location data to brokers

first_imgVerizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile have pledged to stop providing information on U.S. phone owners’ locations to data brokers, stepping back from a business practice that has drawn criticism for endangering privacy.The data has apparently allowed outside companies to pinpoint the location of wireless devices without their owners’ knowledge or consent. Verizon said that about 75 companies have been obtaining its customer data from two little-known California-based brokers that Verizon supplies directly — LocationSmart and Zumigo.Verizon was the first major carrier to declare it would end sales of such data to brokers that then provide it to others. It did so in a June 15 letter to Sen. Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat who has been probing the phone location-tracking market. AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint followed suit Tuesday after The Associated Press reported the Verizon move.None of the carriers said they are getting out of the business of selling location data. The carriers together have more than 300 million U.S. subscribers.Verizon Chief Privacy Officer Karen Zacharia said the company would be careful not to disrupt “beneficial services” such as fraud prevention and emergency roadside assistance. In an email to the AP, AT&T spokesman Jim Greer cited similar reasons for cutting off the intermediaries “as soon as practical.”Last month, Wyden revealed abuses in the lucrative but loosely regulated field involving Securus Technologies, whose contract Verizon says was approved only for the location tracking of outside mobile phones called by prison inmates.Verizon notified LocationSmart and Zumigo, both privately held, that it intends to “terminate their ability to access and use our customers’ location data as soon as possible,” Zacharia wrote.Location data from Verizon and other carriers makes it possible to identify the whereabouts of nearly any phone in the U.S. within seconds. Popular commercial uses for the information include keeping tabs on packages, vehicles and employees; bank fraud prevention; and targeted marketing offers.The cutoff won’t affect users’ ability to share locations directly with apps and other services. Rather, it deals with the practice of providing data to third parties with whom users have no direct contact.Wyden wrote all four major U.S. wireless carriers on May 8 after learning about a web portal that let law officers track Americans’ locations without proper oversight. A former sheriff in Missouri has been accused of using Securus data for unauthorized surveillance of a judge, a sheriff and state highway patrol officers.Days later, a Carnegie Mellon University security researcher discovered a security flaw in LocationSmart’s website that could have allowed any reasonably sophisticated hacker to secretly track almost any phone in the U.S. or Canada.Wyden asked the carriers to identify which third parties have been acquiring carrier location data and to provide details such as any third-party sharing of location data without customer consent. His office shared the companies’ responses with The AP.None of the four carriers named any third parties, with two exceptions. One was Securus, which all four carriers have since cut off. The other was 3CInteractive, the reseller that supplied Securus.“Verizon did the responsible thing and promptly announced it was cutting these companies off,” Wyden said in a statement, referring to the aggregators as “shady middle men.”“The big concern was that this was probably the tip of the iceberg,” said Laura Moy, deputy director of the Georgetown Center on Privacy and Technology. She said Verizon’s move “indicates that it cannot actually police this process, that it doesn’t have the ability.” Nor can the other carriers, she said.None of the four carriers responded to questions from the AP on whether they plan to sell location data directly instead of relying on the two California companies and, if so, how.AT&T and T-Mobile, No. 2 and 3 in customers, said in letters to Wyden they only allow authorized third parties to access customer location data if the affected customers have given consent or if it is required by law — for instance, a court order. Verizon said the same.Sprint said account holders must “generally be notified” if the data is to be used so they can decide whether they consent. T-Mobile has offered to buy Sprint for $26.5 billion.The carriers left most of Wyden’s questions unanswered — such as how many of their customers had been affected by location sharing they never agreed to.Gigi Sohn, a former top advisor at the Federal Communications Commission in the Obama administration, said Verizon has lately proven itself a “shining example” on privacy. “I think they understand that bad privacy practices are bad for business,” she said.Moy said Verizon may have been motivated by a $1.4 million FCC fine for an earlier episode in which the company quietly tracked its wireless customers’ online travels with a “supercookie” for at least 22 months beginning in December 2012.The company subsequently signed a consent order with the FCC promising to restrict that tracking to customers who affirmatively agreed to it.The case also spurred FCC rules that would have required carriers to obtain consent for selling their customers’ wireless location data. But the GOP-led Congress quashed those rules last year.Analysts say it’s difficult to gauge the size of the location-tracking aggregation market.On its website, LocationSmart claims it is the No. 1 “location-as-a-service” provider with data from every top tier U.S. wireless carrier and more than 200 enterprise customers. Zumigo appears oriented to the financial sector, and lists Intel, Wells Fargo and Capital One among investors.In a statement, LocationSmart said it respects user privacy, doesn’t provide access to location information without user consent and doesn’t warehouse data or track user location histories.The CEO of Zumigo, Chirag Bakshi, said his 7-year-old company provides location data to less than a half dozen big banks and financial institutions for fraud prevention. He said Zumigo does not let its customers resell the location data — and hopes to renegotiate with the carriers.Analyst Rich Mogull of Arizona-based Securosis said telecom providers track and sell location data as a matter of course. A wide range of other businesses such as Google also assiduously compile location datasets on consumers.“We are all tracked, all the time, primarily for marketing purposes, by such a large number of companies I’m not sure I would even know where to start the math,” said Mogull.___Associated Press technology writers Matt O’Brien in San Francisco and Mae Anderson in New York contributed to this report.last_img read more

A World Cup Sleeper May Be Lurking In Group H

Thomas MullerBayern Munich0.43 In qualifying, Rodríguez scored and assisted on more goals than any of his teammates, while also having the most shots and touches of the ball. While he may not have become a Galactico in Madrid, he is indisputably his country’s most important player.Check out our latest World Cup predictions.

Read about Group A, Group B, Group C, Group D, Group E, Group F and Group G.Group H is potentially the most interesting in Russia this summer. While the average group difference in FiveThirtyEight’s Soccer Power Index score between the best and worst teams is about 25, Senegal’s SPI rating of 66.0 is only 14.5 points lower than Colombia’s 80.5. Poland (73.3) and Japan (71.4) are rated very similarly in the middle of the group. On top of this, the teams are filled with exciting attacking players from Europe’s strongest leagues: Poland’s Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich), Colombia’s James Rodríguez (Bayern Munich), Japan’s Shinji Kagawa (Borussia Dortmund) and Senegal’s Sadio Mané (Liverpool) will all be battling to make an impression on the world’s biggest stage.Paper tiger or legit contender?After missing three straight World Cups, Colombia made a big impression in the 2014 World Cup — even without Radamel Falcao, who was unable to recover from injury in time to play. Four years later, Los Cafeteros’ talismanic striker is back, but he is no longer the star of the team: After finishing as the top scorer with six goals in Rio, Rodríguez has become the focal point of an exciting Colombian attack, which boasts a 69 percent chance of making it to the knockout stage.José Pékerman’s squad likes to attack directly in open play — in 41 matches tracked by data firm Opta Sports since the 2014 World Cup, Colombia reached the opposition via playing a string of 10 or more successful passes only 75 times, just less than twice a game. Instead, the side relies more on attacks in which at least 50 percent of the movement is toward the opposition goal, with a ratio of these “direct” to “slow” attacks of 4.2-to-1.8. Defensively, they operate a medium block, regaining the ball in the middle area of the pitch 23.3 times per game — more than any other team in South American qualifying.Poland, marginally the second favorite in Group H with a 55 percent chance of finishing first or second, is even more reliant on its star player, Lewandowski.1Lewandowski and Rodríguez were teammates this season during Rodríguez’s loan from Real Madrid. In qualifying, the towering striker was Poland’s top shot taker and goal scorer, and he also created the most Opta-defined “big chances” for his teammates. With 16 goals, he scored more than any other player in European qualifying, either scoring or assisting on 61 percent of Poland’s goals.Underdog or also-ran? Japan, with a 43 percent chance of getting through the group, is something of an unknown given that it changed manager in April, with Akira Nishino taking charge. The side’s two main attackers, Keisuke Honda and Shinji Kagawa, have a wealth of experience representing their country on the international stage, but they have been somewhat ineffective over the past few years, both being dropped by previous managers. With an average age of 28.6, the squad is severely lacking in young talent.Skillful wingers Keita Baldé and Mané offer Senegal’s main threat in attack, while the towering defensive presence of Kalidou Koulibaly makes the spine of the team seem stronger than its 33 percent chance of progression may suggest. Given the relative equality of the group, a strong performance from Senegal in its opener against Poland could dramatically change expectations.Player to watchIn 2014, James Rodríguez was a relative unknown who went on to become the archetype of a World Cup breakout. But after a disappointing move to Real Madrid culminated in a loan to Bayern Munich this year, the left-footed magician returns to the international stage with a point to prove.Rodríguez is coming off the back of a redemptive season in which he was one of the best creators in Germany and played a similarly dominant attacking role: He completed more passes per 90 minutes than any attacker in the Bundesliga to have played more than 25 percent of available minutes. He was also tied for fifth in expected assists per 90 minutes in open play, and he assisted the second most shots per 90 from set pieces.

How First World War PoWs betrayed details of the first mass tank

first_imgFrontlines before and after the battle Frontlines before and after the battle The impact of the men’s betrayal was serious enough to hamper the assault at the Battle of Cambrai, and in all likelihood led to an unknown number of additional casualties.Mr Taylor told BBC History Magazine: “Because Flesquières wasn’t taken, the cavalry couldn’t go through there, the key Bourlon ridge wasn’t taken on the first day, and the whole operation eventually ran out of steam.”It wasn’t the only setback, but the betrayal of information was key to the Germans being able to repel that attack.”Precisely which of the prisoners betrayed the British operation is unclear, as the German interrogation report does not identify individual informants. German troops inspect a Mark 1 tank after the Battle of Cambrai in November 1917Credit:Bundesarchiv German soldiers with the remains of a British Tank knocked out by artillery fire during German counter attacks near Cambrai  German troops inspect a Mark 1 tank after the Battle of Cambrai in November 1917 The interrogation report, published in Deborah and the War of the Tanks, by historian John Taylor, notes: “A great animosity prevails towards England, with no interest whatever in her war aims. They [prisoners] say if an uprising takes place in Ireland, they would take up arms against England without more ado.”Adding to the sense of resentment was the fact that men from the Ulster Division had been stationed in No Man’s Land, to divert attention away from the elite 51st Highland Division and tanks massed just yards from the German lines ahead of the assault – leaving them vulnerable to eventual capture. The Ulster Division had been considered one of the most patriotic of the British Army, having grown out of the fiercely Loyalist Ulster Volunteers.But during three years of fighting its strength had been seriously depleted, forcing it to recruit not only from the British mainland, but from Catholic areas of Ireland sympathetic to the burgeoning independence movement.As a result German interrogators appeared to have had little difficulty extracting intelligence from at least some of the captured men. Men of the 16th Battalion, Royal Irish Rifles of the 36th Ulster Division moving to frontline 20 November 1917 A great animosity prevails towards England, with no interest whatever in her war aims.German interrogation reportcenter_img Organised amid the utmost secrecy the assault on the French village of Flesquières should have been a key element in the first mass tank attack in history.But the plan went awry when the attack was ambushed by the Germans, who managed to delay the British advance.For years historians struggled to explain why the enemy had obtained enough detail of the operation to rush reinforcements to Flesquières ahead of the planned assault.Only now – nearly 100 years on – can it be revealed that the German high command was given notice of the attack by a group of captured British soldiers.The betrayal appears to have been the result of growing hostility to British rule in Ireland – so much so that it led members of the captured unit to reveal secret plans to their interrogators. The operation to breach the formidable German positions near the French town of Cambrai, known as the Hindenburg Line, relied on complete secrecy and involved using more than 350 tanks in a daring experiment, following a series of small scale tank engagements earlier in the conflict.However, in a twist of fate, just two days earlier – on November 18, 1917 – six soldiers from the 36th Ulster Division had been captured by the Germans during a trench raid.

Two were Ulster Protestants, Corporal George Reginald Ball and and Private James Cope, and two others were English, north Londoner Sergeant William Harold Whitaker and Lance-Corporal Frederick Charles Rowe.But the captured unit also included two Irish Catholics, who Mr Taylor believes may have harboured resentment about the suppression of the Easter Rising by Irish nationalists the previous year.The book reveals that one was Private Neil McCauley, a 28-year-old council labourer from Londonderry, whose cousin had died at Gallipoli.The other was Private Laurence O’Brien, a 26-year-old from County Wicklow, in southern Ireland, who had been injured in the raid and had put up a fight to avoid being captured.“However angry some of the men were about the situation in Ireland, and about their thankless posting, it still seems extraordinary that they could have passed on such sensitive information to the enemy, knowing it would endanger the lives of their own friends and fellow countrymen,” said Mr Taylor.

Southern Railway strike dates threaten Christmas and New Year train chaos

first_imgTravellers face heightened transport chaos over Christmas and New Year after it was announced that Southern Railway workers are to stage fresh strikes during the holiday season.Network Rail has already announced major station closures over Christmas and airports face potential strikes and staff shortagesBut the escalation in Southern’s bitter row over changes to the role of conductors was announced on Thursday by the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union ahead of another 48-hour walkout from midnight, which will bring more travel misery for hundreds of thousands of passengers into Friday.Union members will now strike from 0001 on December 22 until 2359 on Christmas Eve and again from 0001 on New Year’s Eve until 2359 on January 2. RMT general secretary Mick Cash said Southern’s owners, Govia Thameslink Railway, and the Government had made it clear they have no interest in resolving the long-running row.”Yet again, the sheer pig-headedness of the company and the Government means that our members are being forced to take further industrial action in a bid to maintain a safe and secure service on Southern Rail,” he said.Union members have staged a series of strikes in recent months and the two sides have held hours of talks, but the dispute remains deadlocked.Meanwhile, an extensive rail improvements programme involving up to 200 projects will leave five London stations fully or partially closed over the festive period.The news comes as workers at Gatwick are set to vote on a Christmas walkout over a pensions row, and Unite expressed concerned that the closure of a baggage carrier could affect service at four major airports.Rail passengers will face disruption for up to 14 days, with closures at Paddington, Liverpool Street, Charing Cross, Waterloo and Cannon Street  affecting travel between many parts of the country.  “The only obstacle to their removal from their management contract is the Government who are calling the shots and pulling the strings behind the scenes while publicly claiming the dispute is between RMT and GTR (Govia Thameslink Railway).”It is total nonsense but is a tactic which is deliberately blocking any chance of progress.”In the light of the continuing public anger at the absolute state of the Southern Rail operation it is disgraceful that neither the company or the Government are prepared to engage and are continuing to attempt to impose driver-only operation in the interests of putting profit before safety.”We call on them to get round the negotiating table rather than jamming their heads in the sand.” We’re aware that RMT union have called further strikes in December & January. Once we have more info we will of course share this with you— Southern (@SouthernRailUK) November 3, 2016center_img Services have been disrupted for months, partly due to the strikes, staff shortages and other problems.A damaged track caused chaos on Tuesday evening, leading commuters to warn of dangerously overcrowded trains and platforms.Mr Cash repeated his call to Transport Secretary Chris Grayling to “get out of his bunker” and try to help resolve the row.He said: “He continues to ignore us. If Government ministers can meet with our colleagues from the Prison Officers Association over safety in prisons then there is no reason whatsoever why they can’t meet with RMT over safety on our railways.”This week we have seen repeated chaos on Southern Rail services that has shown once again that they are simply incapable of running safe and reliable services.

Sandvik expanding footprint in Ghana

first_imgHaving outgrown its original premises in Accra, Ghana, high technology and services engineering group Sandvik has moved into a dedicated office in the capital, capable of accommodating the current staff complement of 100, with capacity for future expansion. Speaking at the April 2012 ribbon cutting ceremony that officially opened the new building, James Oosthuizen, Sandvik’s vice-president sales area West Africa and managing director of Sandvik Ghana, said a good and conducive office environment would facilitate improved customer service, create and sustain operational efficiencies and ensure the comfort and well-being of the company’s employees.Sandvik, which celebrates its 150th anniversary of global operation in 2012, originally established a presence in Ghana nearly 15 years ago, starting out with about 26 staff members and operating from Accra, Obuasi and Tarkwa, where the bulk of the company’s activities lay at that time. Over the years, Sandvik maintained the Accra office for ease of coordination and the much needed interaction with its burgeoning customer base, most of whom have their corporate offices in the capital. However, Sandvik’s Ghana team has since expanded and space became extremely limited, particularly since this building was shared with other organisations and also served as residential accommodation. These realities, coupled with the fact that Sandvik was no longer able to effectively maintain its desired environmental and occupational health and safety (EHS) best practices, led to the decision to move to new premises.At the same time, work has begun on the construction of an ultra-modern Sandvik complex in Kumasi, in southern central Ghana’s Ashanti region, that will incorporate offices, a training facility, an equipment servicing and rebuild section and warehousing. The ground-breaking ceremony for the new Kumasi complex also took place in April 2012 and included the Ashanti King, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II and government representatives among its VIP guests. At the event Oosthuizen described the establishment of a fully-fledged Sandvik facility in Ghana as “the visible beginning of a new era in the operations of Sandvik Mining in West Africa.”  He added: “The facility represents a massive investment into an environmentally friendly and occupationally safe and healthy facility, in demonstration of our commitment to protecting the environment for ourselves and for posterity and to ensuring that we go about our jobs with zero harm.” Oosthuizen stressed that the facility’s workshop, warehouse and training facilities would also provide opportunities for the essential practical experience required by students at educational institutions in the area.last_img read more

Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page. Amazonlast_img read more

Lingerie is a beautiful business to be in Clovia CEO Pankaj Vermani

first_imgRepresentational image.By special arrangementIndia’s $4-billion lingerie market is growing at a significant pace and has attracted many new players, one of them being Clovia, run by Noida-based Purple Panda Fashions Pvt Ltd. It designs, manufactures and sells a range of lingerie and is bullish on growth prospects, hoping to break-even this fiscal. The start-up counts IvyCap Ventures, Mountain Partners, Ravi Dhariwal and Singularity Ventures as its investors.In an interview with International Business Times, India edition (IBT), Pankaj Vermani, the co-founder and CEO of Purple Panda, shares business plans, dynamics of the trade and impact of GST on the venture.IBT: How was the year gone by (2016-17) for you in terms of revenues? Your sales in 2015-16 stood at Rs 30 crore, according to RoC filings. Pankaj Vermani (PV): We managed to grow by around 60 percent in 2016-17, despite the impact of demonetisation in the second half of fiscal 2017.IBT: Could you manage to break-even, or is it still some time away? What are the growth projections for the current fiscal? PV: We are confident of breaking even in the next two quarters. We’ve always been profitable at operating level… as for revenues, we are aiming for 100 percent growth over last financial year.IBT: What is the profit margin in lingerie business? PV: Very high… at a post-tax level, it is around 65 percent for us. If we were to look at an operating level, it’s even higher, around 120 percent.IBT: Are women spending more on lingerie these days? What is the average ticket size? PV: Definitely more… when we started (after rebranding as Clovia in June 2015), it hovered around Rs 650 per customer. As we started offering more premium products, the ticket size grew gradually to Rs 900, now it averages around Rs 1,000.IBT: What is the size of the lingerie market in India? PV: At this point of time, it’s a $4-billion market, comprising innerwear and nightwear. It’s growing at a CAGR of 17-20 percent… the potential for growth is huge.IBT: Can you share details of your revenue mix, customer profile? PV: We have our own portal that generates about 50 percent of sales while online marketplaces contribute about 30 percent. The rest comes from the offline segment (shop-in-shops). From an age-group profile, around 35 percent of them are in the 18-24 years group while those in the 25-35 years group account for another 35 percent.IBT: Where do you source raw material from and where are your manufacturing units located? PV: We buy from various countries… the under-wires that are used for bras are mainly sourced from the US and Singapore, some also come from China. We source fabric from within the country and also from other places. The fabric for nightwear predominantly comes from China. The stitching is done by our job-workers at 17 units located in the NCR region under our supervision.IBT: Does data analytics help in predicting buying preferences and design? PV: Lingerie is a beautiful business to be in. In the context of India, it is not just one market, there are five markets actually. The body types in the Northeast states are different from the rest of India; similarly, colour preferences also vary from region to region. In terms of adoption, those in the Northeast states are the fastest, followed by West, North and South.Understanding these dynamics is very important to our business in designing products, they are also key to managing inventory.IBT: Do you, like many other branded apparel makers, face the problem of counterfeit products? PV: It’s definitely there… Our legal team has got many counterfeit brands shut. In a way, that’s the pain of growing and people recognising us. In a lighter vein, I would say that given lingerie is such a difficult apparel to imitate, I would rather hire a good counterfeiter on my payroll.IBT: What is the GST rate applicable to your business? PV: Well, on fabric it is 5 percent and the same for job-work that we get done. On finished products, it is 12 percent if the value is Rs 1,000 or more, and 5 percent if less than that. Currently, we pay 2 percent CST, 5 percent VAT and also excise duty.However, compliance is going to be a challenge under GST. Our finance team says that we would have to file four returns in every state. The biggest challenge before us today is inventory lying at various locations… it’s still not clear how to avail of input tax credit. Representational image.By special arrangementlast_img read more

Official Ethiopias ruling party names new leader

first_img“Since the party holds an overwhelming majority the party’s chair is automatically the country’s prime minister,” Bereket said. “So Hailemariam will be the country’s new prime minister.”A 180-member council of the EPRDF appointed Hailemariam unanimously and also selected Education Minister Demeke Mekonnen to become deputy chairman. The ruling party controls 545 of the 547 seats in parliament, guaranteeing swift passage of its resolutions.Hailemariam’s ascension to the ruling party’s top leadership signals that he is not just warming the seat for someone else and that influential party officials are keen to respect the wishes of Meles, who picked Hailemariam from obscurity and made him foreign minister and deputy prime minister.Some analysts say that it was always clear that the ruling party would pick Hailemariam, who promises to continue the domestic and foreign policies favored by Meles.“I think the party bosses have no choice but to go through with appointing Hailemariam,” Jawar Mohammed, an Ethiopian political analyst who is currently pursuing graduate studies at Columbia University in New York, said on the eve of Hailemariam’s selection as party leader. Sponsored Stories Top Stories Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Natural spring cleaning tips and tricks for your home Associated PressADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AP) – Ethiopia’s ruling party on Saturday named as its leader acting Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn, who took over after the death last month of longtime leader Meles Zenawi, an official said at the end of a congress of party bosses.As chairman of the Ethiopian Peoples’ Revolutionary Democratic Front, or EPRDF, Hailemariam, 47, will almost certainly be confirmed as the country’s prime minister in an upcoming official ceremony. Bereket Simon, Ethiopia’s communications minister, said Hailemariam would be sworn in soon. It remains unclear exactly when, but Bereket said this might happen early next month. Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Top holiday drink recipescenter_img Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix 3 international destinations to visit in 2019 ___Associated Press writer Rodney Muhumuza contributed reporting from Kampala, Uganda(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Mohammed said that the Ethiopian public, anxious for stability after the death of a longtime ruler, had already been “given the impression that (Hailemariam) was groomed to replace Meles in 2015,” when general elections are due in Ethiopia. He added that it would have been almost impossible for the ruling party to find “an alternative replacement that is acceptable to the four coalition members and the various factions within them.”Meles, who died Aug. 20 of an undisclosed illness in a Belgian hospital, ruled Ethiopia with an iron fist since 1991. Some praised him for lifting many Ethiopians out of abject poverty, but others saw him as a tyrant who restricted certain freedoms, including free speech.The International Crisis Group said after the death of Meles that Hailemariam was not likely to be as pivotal and decisive a figure as the man he replaced.“Given the opacity of the inner workings of the government and army, it is impossible to say exactly what it will look like and who will end up in charge. Nonetheless, any likely outcome suggests a much weaker government, a more influential security apparatus and endangered internal stability,” the group’s report said.

FHFAs Fourth Quarter Findings a Mixed Message

first_img February 23, 2012 398 Views in Data, Government, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing, Technology FHFA’s Fourth Quarter Findings a Mixed Message The “”Federal Housing Finance Agency”” has released its data from the fourth quarter of 2011, and findings from the government organization’s survey show that U.S. home pricing was slightly on the decline during the period. The FHFA’s seasonally-adjusted, purchase-only “”house price index (HPI)”” demonstrated a 0.1 percent drop in pricing between quarters, and year-over-year, the statistics displayed a decrease of 2.4 percent.[IMAGE]In spite of the national trend, however, HPI findings from the FHFA indicated that 27 states and the District of Columbia recorded a rise for the fourth quarter of last year. Out of the report’s nine Census Divisions, the West South Central region proved to be the strongest during the quarter, with the area experiencing an increase in home pricing of 1.1 percent.The country’s weakest division was the Middle Atlantic region, and the area’s housing prices dropped by 1.2 percent to end 2011. Specifically, the FHFA’s analysis found that the hardest hit metropolitan area was the Chicago-Joliet-Napervile, Illinois,[COLUMN_BREAK] territory, which recorded a year-over-year pricing decline of 9.8 percent for the fourth quarter.In Michigan, one of the nation’s most dramatically depressed states in terms of housing and overall economic conditions, the FHFA reported positive news for the metro area of Warren-Troy-Farmington Hills. Fourth quarter totals for the region demonstrate a year-over-year pop in home pricing of 3.5 percent.The FHFA’s seasonally adjusted monthly index for December 2011 displayed a 0.7 percent improvement from its November findings. Andrew Leventis, the FHFA’s principal economist, said of the recent data, “”While FHFA’s national index shows a 2 percentage point price decline over the latest four quarters, 12 states and the District of Columbia posted price increases.””Leventis went on to add, “”When coupled with the fact that about half of all U.S. states saw price increases in the latest quarter, this growth adds to mounting evidence that real estate markets are seeing at least some signs of life.””Other statistics reported by the FHFA included its expanded-data house price index, which adds transaction information from county recorder offices and the “”Federal Housing Administration”” to the traditional HPI data sample. The expanded HPI dropped 0.8 percent quarter-over-quarter and remains down by 2.9 percent for the full year.The FHFA’s traditional HPI is calculated using home sales price information from “”Fannie Mae”” and “”Freddie Mac”” mortgages. The organization’s surveys account for statistics recorded over 37 years, and the HPI tracks an estimated 6 million repeat sales transactions for its purchase-only index and another 44 million repeat transactions for its broader index.center_img Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Company News Fannie Mae FHA FHFA Freddie Mac Investors Lenders & Servicers Processing Service Providers 2012-02-23 Abby Gregory Sharelast_img read more
