Research and Statistics 

The Division of Research and Statistics is responsible for developing and presenting economic and financial data and analysis for the use of the Board, the Federal Open Market Committee, and other Federal Reserve System officials. This information serves as background for the formulation and conduct of monetary, regulatory, and supervisory policies. In addition, the division fosters a broader understanding of issues relating to economic policy by providing leadership in economic and statistical research and by supplying data and analyses for public release.

Industrial Output

The Industrial Output section produces the Board's monthly indexes of industrial production and capacity utilization. Research on measurement of real output, seasonal adjustment, and filtering techniques supports this work. The section also conducts research using disaggregated or microdata to analyze trends in industry productivity and inflation.
