Center for Household Financial Stability

The Center for Household Financial Stability was launched by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis in 2013 to research and strengthen the financial health of struggling families in the U.S.

We especially focus on what a family saves, owns and owes—also called a family’s wealth.

  • This primer highlights the state of wealth inequality in the United States.
  • Our signature Demographics of Wealth series explores the unique roles that birth year, education, and race and ethnicity play in predicting a family’s wealth.

Stay connected with the latest news and research by signing up for the Center's email alert.
