Ninth District Insight is a semiannual survey designed to capture front-line observations about issues that affect the economic health of LMI communities. Participants’ responses serve as leading indicators of change in conditions that are otherwise difficult to measure or are not measured through other existing data sources. Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis senior leadership and Community Development staff use Ninth District Insight to help identify regulatory and policy issues that deserve attention and to decide how Community Development program resources should be targeted. We hope that the community-based perspective that Ninth District Insight provides also serves as a valuable resource for decision makers outside the Federal Reserve System.
Participation in Ninth District Insight is entirely voluntary and no individually identifiable information is reported. If you would like your organization to be considered for inclusion in the next survey, contact Ela Rausch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
