Center for Microeconomic Data

Introducing the Center for Microeconomic Data

Welcome to the New York Fed's Center for Microeconomic Data website. This new research hub centralizes our collection and analysis of microeconomic data for easier navigation. For example, if you're looking for information on credit conditions, you can use the Center's website to access our Household Debt and Credit Report. We're hopeful the Center's data, research and policy reports will be useful to microeconomists, academics, policymakers and the public. I'd like to invite you to explore our work.
