The Summary of Commentary on Current Economic Conditions by Federal Reserve District, commonly known as the Beige Book, is a report published eight times per year by the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. Each Federal Reserve Bank gathers anecdotal information on current economic conditions in its district through reports from the head office and branch directors and interviews with key business contacts, economists, market experts, and other sources. The Beige Book summarizes this information by Federal Reserve District and industry sector. An overall summary of the twelve district reports is prepared by a designated Federal Reserve Bank on a rotating basis. For more information, see the Beige Book.
