Chicago Fed Letter, No. 185, January 2003
Using Data and Anecdotal Evidence to Understand the Regional Economy
The Chicago Fed studies the ever-changing structure of the Midwest economy through long-term academic research, conferences, and gathering anecdotal evidence on regional economic activity for the Federal Reserve’s periodic Beige Book publication, which provides a snapshot of all 12 Federal Reserve Districts. Recent changes in the format of the Chicago Fed’s Beige Book contribution aim to increase its usefulness to policymakers and the public.
