September 1, 2016

NEW YORK—On Tuesday, September 6, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s Liberty Street Economics blog will launch a blog series on different aspects of the evolving higher education market, including enrollment growth and its composition, student loans, and student loan defaults. The first post is entitled “The Changing Higher Education Landscape” and will assess the transformation of different sectors of higher education over the past sixteen years. The series that follows will explore the student populations that led to this growth in enrollment and analyze how student loans, graduation, and loan defaults changed in various postsecondary sectors. 

The blog series runs through Friday, September 9, one post per day, and will be accessible each morning through the Liberty Street Economics blog and on the Economic Research Tracker, the New York Fed’s iPadĀ® app.

The New York Fed will also host a background press call on Friday, September 9 at 9:00 AM EDT to provide further context on the topics covered. Press interested in participating in the call should RSVP to Betsy Bourassa at Betsy.Bourassa@ny.frb.org.
