Map of the 12 Federal Reserve Districts
The Federal Reserve is carefully designed to represent many viewpoints. The 12 regional Federal Reserve banks—including the St. Louis Fed—provide our central banking system with a decentralized operating structure. The regional banks were set up intentionally to disperse, throughout the country, power that might otherwise be disproportionately centered in New York City or Washington, D.C.
