Our mission is to produce leading-edge research on how credit markets and payment systems affect the economy. The Institute sponsors opportunities for scholars, the financial industry, and the public sector to collaborate and share insights on fostering healthy household finances, a stable financial system, and a resilient economy.
Eileen Divringi engages in mixed-methods research around consumer credit use, focusing on low- and moderate-income communities. She helped develop the Consumer Credit Explorer, an interactive tool for exploring state and regional credit trends.
Our continually updated database provides bibliographic citations for journal articles, books, reports, and other publications on consumer credit and payments and links to full-text papers from across the Federal Reserve System.
