Regional Economic Data and Conditions
As the branch of the nation’s central bank in New England, the Boston Fed monitors the region’s economy in real time, providing data and analysis on regional economic conditions from northern Maine to southern Connecticut. We offer a range of resources from data tools, periodic economic updates, and public presentations that share our findings.
New England Economic Indicators
A quarterly publication of the New England Public Policy Center reviewing economic data for the six New England states and the region as a whole. Data include labor market conditions, income, consumer prices, real estate, merchandise exports, electricity sales, state revenues, and economic activity. Monthly and quarterly data are available in summary format and via an interactive tool.
City Data Tool
This data tool uses Census data to compare the demographic characteristics of lower-income and higher-income areas within a city. It also provides aggregate information for New England states and for the region as a whole.
Commonly known as the Beige Book, this report is published eight times per year by the Board of Governors. Each Federal Reserve Bank gathers anecdotal information on current economic conditions in its District through reports from Bank and Branch directors and interviews with key business contacts, economists, market experts, and other sources. The Beige Book summarizes this information by District and sector. An overall summary of the twelve district reports is provided every six weeks.
New England Economic Updates
Federal Reserve Bank of Boston’s economists and analysts present New England Economic Updates on regional economic conditions to public audiences and advisory groups. This includes presentations to the bank’s New England Advisory Council (NEAC), and, upon request and on a limited basis, to non-profit, professional, business and civic groups.
