I have an Equation

30 12 2009

For my bankruptcy project I intend to study the relationship of Oregon and/or nationwide bankruptcy filings against a series of factors.  I became curious of this subject in my bankruptcy work.

This is a continuation of an earlier post on an economic project I am working on.

The main variable being The number of Bankruptcy filings in a region every month for a series of years. The realtion of this value will be tested relatively to the following variables (each according to monthly numbers).

  • The Federal Funds rate, the interest rates that which banks offer each other loans.
  • Regional unemployment statistics.
  • Home prices (ie median value, assessed value or market prices).

Those three are the primary values I expect to have significant relationships to bankruptcy filings.  There is however an additional “wild card” variable:  Divorce data.  I will include divorce filings by state to include them in the equation.

Hopefully when the data is compiled we can see if there is a meaningful correlation between bankruptcy and divorce filings.  Expect more to come on this subject.  There is quite a bit of data to mine.
