     The Federal Reserve Archival System for Economic Research (FRASER®) started in 2004 as a data preservation and accessibility project of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. FRASER’s mission is to safeguard and provide easy access to the nation’s economic history—particularly the history of the Federal Reserve System—through digitization of documents related to the U.S. financial system.

     FRASER preserves and provides access to economic and banking data and policy documents. To this end, various types of documents have been digitized, including the following:

  • Publications of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System
  • Publications of District Federal Reserve Banks
  • Statements and speeches of Fed policymakers
  • Archival materials of Fed policymakers
  • Government data publications
  • Statistical releases
  • Congressional hearings
  • Books
