ST. LOUIS – The Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis has published its latest St. Louis Burgundy Book, a quarterly review of economic information for the St. Louis Zone of the Eighth District.
Please note: This will be the final Burgundy Book. Starting in 2017, Zone-specific anecdotal information will be included in a supplement to the redesigned Beige Book. The Beige Book will next be released Jan. 18. The regional economic data contained in the report is available in the St. Louis Fed’s FRED database and may be accessed at research.stlouisfed.org/regecon.
The St. Louis Zone includes central and eastern Missouri as well as southern Illinois and represents a total population of approximately 5.6 million people, including close to 3 million who live in the St. Louis metropolitan statistical area.
The St. Louis report is part of the larger Burgundy Books publication, which offers comprehensive economic information for each of the Bank’s four zones: St. Louis, Little Rock, Ark., Louisville, Ky., and Memphis, Tenn.
