ST. LOUIS – The Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis has published its latest Little Rock Burgundy Book, a quarterly review of economic information for the Little Rock 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 Little Rock Zone includes the majority of Arkansas, except the northeast part of the state. The population in the Zone is approximately 2.5 million people, including the 710,000 who live in the Little Rock metropolitan statistical area.
The Little Rock 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, Louisville, Ky., and Memphis, Tenn.
