Community Development Data

Our community development data sets show metrics around key indicators of financial well-being in the Third District and the U.S. This information informs policy, decision making, and investment in low- and moderate-income communities. These resources align with our goals to promote fair access to credit and an inclusive economy.

The Data Dashboard

The community development data dashboard provides insight into economic and housing conditions and trends in low- and moderate-income (LMI) communities. Some data sets are available for neighborhoods, while others show data at the borrower or household level. Often, this kind of information is presented for a city, region, state, or the U.S. as a whole. By reporting trends and conditions by income category this resource can help shed light on the experiences of LMI communities within a given geography.
