The Beige Book

The Beige Book


May 2017

The Beige Book is a Federal Reserve System publication about current economic conditions across the 12 Federal Reserve Districts. It charac-terizes regional economic conditions and prospects based on a variety of mostly qualitative information, gathered directly from District sources. The qualitative nature of the Beige Book creates an opportunity to characterize dynamics and identify emerging trends in the economy that may not be readily apparent in the available economic data. Be-cause this information is collected from a wide range of business and community contacts through a variety of formal and informal methods, the Beige Book can complement other forms of regional information gathering.
