bold ideas, diverse cultures
Our work helps fulfill the Bank’s core monetary policy mission through the production of cutting-edge research and public outreach. Economists and research analysts collaborate on current analysis as well as on ambitious research projects that are often published in leading academic journals.
National and International Economics
Our economists engage in scholarly research and policy-oriented analysis on a wide range of important issues. They have developed various tools that shed light on the state of the U.S. economy, such as:
- Trimmed Mean PCE
- Weekly Economic Index
- Mobility and Engagement Index
- Real-Time Population Survey
The purpose of the institute is to better understand how deepening economic integration between countries, or globalization, alters the environment in which U.S. monetary policy decisions are made. Some popular data products include:
- International House Price Database
- Database of Global Economic Indicators
Regional and Energy Expertise
The Eleventh District has unique expertise in energy economics, immigration, and trade. Texas is the nation's top producer of crude oil and natural gas, making energy an integral part of the state’s economy; the Dallas Fed has a group of economists focused on energy markets and their impact on overall economic activity. Among states, Texas also has the longest border with Mexico and the nation's largest inland port; several economists focus on trade and immigration, and the Dallas Fed has a strategic partnership with Banco de Mexico. Our economists regularly visit Banco de Mexico and have co-authored articles with their staff. We’ve also developed surveys that provide a timely assessment of Texas economic activity, such as:
- Texas Business Outlook Surveys
- Dallas Fed Energy Survey
- Banking Conditions Survey
- Agricultural Survey
