About Economic Research
The Economic Research Department conducts research on a wide range of topics in support of the Federal Reserve Bank’s policy and public outreach functions. It is organized into five broad sections: macroeconomic and microeconomic research; international research; financial research; financial stability research; and research communications. Staff members include 27 PhD economists, an economic analyst, and 15 research associates who are recent graduates from colleges across the country. Additional staff members provide support of information technology, copy editing, administrative, and archival services.
As a way to further its research mission, the department has an active visitor program and is host to the Center for Pacific Basin Studies. The Center seeks to promote cooperation among central banks in the Pacific Basin and provide insight into and analysis of economic policy issues affecting the region.
