The Mortgage Bankers Association has released a 60-page study intended to serve as an overview for choosing between different types of mortgages and determining when to refinance.

The 58-page study, "A Financial Analysis of Consumer Mortgage Decisions," also analyzes the pros and cons of using surplus cash to pay down a mortgage or investing in Treasurys or municipal bonds.
