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.

Systemic Financial Institutions and Markets

The Systemic Financial Institutions and Markets section conducts policy analysis and economic research on financial stability. This includes research on systemically important financial institutions (SIFIs) and markets, the features of the financial system that can lead to systemic instability, and the transmission channels between the financial and real sectors of the economy. The section also conducts policy work and research on the effects of the regulatory environment on systemic financial institutions and markets. This work supports the monetary policy, supervisory, and regulatory activities of the Board.
