Layered risk (3)0.2%0.1%0.1%0.1%0.1%0.3%
(1)    Loans are considered to be in default as of the payment date at which a borrower has missed the preceding two or more
consecutive monthly payments
(2)    Default rate is calculated as total loans in default divided by total policies in force
(3)    Layered risk includes loans with more than one in-focus risk factor

The information concerning the Company's default inventory is compiled from reports received from loan servicers and can be influenced by, among other things, the date on which a servicer generates its report, the number of business days in a month, and transfers of servicing rights between loan servicers. While our total default population declined from March 31, 2021 to April 30, 2021, our default population may increase going forward if additional borrowers face challenges related to the COVID-19 outbreak and choose to access the forbearance program for federally backed loans codified under the CARES Act or other programs made available by private lenders.
