Economist and Research Assistant Diversity Data

We represent the residents of the Ninth District and recognize the value of a diverse workforce.

The table below shows the racial/ ethnic and gender makeup of Ph.D. economists and research assistants at the Minneapolis Fed.

Economists employed at each district’s Reserve Bank and the Federal Reserve Board of Governors have wide-ranging expertise.

Research assistants are generally hired directly after undergraduate study, and they work alongside economists. They are usually in their positions for a few years and leave the role well suited to pursue a graduate degree—often in economics. This count of research assistants includes research analysts, a role unique to the Minneapolis Fed. Research analysts are current economics Ph.D. students who are employed by the Bank.
