Did you know that the Federal Reserve’s 12th District covers nearly one and a half million square miles of land mass? That it is home to more than 55 million people? Or that if California were an independent nation, in 2005 it would have had the tenth largest economy in the world?
The Federal Reserve’s 12th District encompasses nine Western states—Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington. It also encompasses a wide range of communities—from major metropolitan areas to agricultural towns and Native reservations. In this section, we present demographic, economic, governmental, and financial data and reports that can help us to understand the community development challenges and opportunities in these diverse communities.
