R&S Centennial Conference
November 8, 2023
Federal Reserve Board, Washington, D.C.
The Federal Reserve is hosting a conference on November 8, 2023, to celebrate the centennial of the Division of Research and Statistics.
The Division of Research and Statistics (R&S) was created in 1923 when the Division of Analysis and Research was consolidated with the Division of Statistics. The R&S division has long been responsible for providing key support to the Board and the FOMC on a broad range of economic and financial matters. The division also produces some of the Board's surveys and statistical releases, including the Survey of Consumer Finances, the Financial Accounts of the United States, and the Index of Industrial Production. In addition, R&S staff generate academic research that further the public's understanding on inflation, unemployment, financial developments, and many other topics.
The conference on November 8 will focus on the past, present, and future of the division. Featured speakers include Chair Powell, Vice Chair Jefferson, and President and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, John C. Williams.
This event is by invitation only and open to members of the press. Media who wish to register should contact Public Affairs at [email protected]. The conference will be webcast at www.federalreserve.gov and https://www.youtube.com/federalreserve.
