Burgundy Book Basics: How the St. Louis Fed Gathers, Analyzes and Summarizes Regional Economic Data

Please join us at the Louisville Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis for Burgundy Book Basics.

The Fed gathers enormous amounts of data that is compiled into journals, periodicals, research papers and reports.

One series of reports—the Burgundy Books—examines economic conditions for the District’s three zones, Memphis, Little Rock and Louisville. In the Louisville Burgundy Book you’ll find useful information about our zone—including employment trends, unemployment numbers, industry growth by sector and overall news regarding the health of our economy.

Of course such a report is only useful if you know that it exists and how to use it. That’s where this talk comes into play. Join us on Feb. 19th and hear from the co-author of the Louisville zone’s Burgundy Book, St. Louis Fed Economist Kevin Kliesen. You’ll learn what it’s about and how it could be of use to you.

Breakfast begins at 7:30 a.m. with the presentation at 8:00 a.m. There is no fee to attend this event, but registration is required by Feb. 12th.
