FRED Adds District-Level Banking Data

FRED offers two new datasets on banks supervised by the Federal Reserve Districts: total assets and number of banks. These data differ from the typical, historical data by classifying banks according to the District that has supervisory responsibility for it, rather than using the location of the bank’s headquarters. The latest edition of The Regional Economist compares the two methods and explains the differences shown in the above graph.
