The Research Division at the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis is a longtime leader in the field of macroeconomics and is known for its extensive collaboration with the Economics Department at the University of Minnesota.  The goal of the Research Division is to “contribute to the advancement of research and the debate on selected public policy issues.”  To this end, the purpose of the Research Database is to gather the materials created through economic research at the Minneapolis Fed, and make them available to the public.

The Research Database contains publications, conference proceedings, and datasets. Materials are added regularly. The Research Database is currently under development, so some features are still in progress. If you don’t find what you need here, try the Research Archives or the Research Division homepage.

The Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis Research Database is a project undertaken by Research Information Services and the Research Division of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis.  For assistance, please contact Research Information Services staff at

The Research Database is a Hyrax application, which is open source software developed by the Samvera Community.
