Federal Reserve Economic Data (USA)


FEDFRED, the U.S. Federal Reserve economic data portal provides access to over 800,000 time series from 108 national and international sources. Data is collected and collated by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis and presented in eight thematic categories: Academic data; Money, banking, and finance; National accounts; Population, employment and labour markets; Production and business activity; Prices; International data, and U.S. regional data.

The Federal Reserve provides tools for data mining, analysis, visualisation and download via Excel add-in. Full details are in the data tools directory.

ALFRED provides vintage versions of economic data, including original (unrevised) data releases. Full details are in the guide Capturing Data as it Happens.

CASSIDI (Competitive Analysis and Structure Source Instrument for Depository Institutions) is a Federal Reserve resource with data and tools for the analysis of the US banking sector.

FRASER is the Federal Reserve economic history portal, providing archival collections, policy documents and statistical data. Historical records can now be browsed by over 1,000 subject-heads including monetary policy, business cycles and industrial production. 

GeoFRED (Geographical Economic Data) presents interactive tools for generating thematic maps using economic data observations. The unit of territory can be defined at the global, regional, state or sub-state level.

The Center for Microeconomic Data at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York provides individual level financial and nonfinancial data on "economic conditions, expectations, and behavior in the United States. Key research includes the Quarterly Report on Household Debt and Credit (based on the New York Fed Consumer Credit Panel) and the Survey of Consumer Expectations."
