Fed Article Series to Cover Financial Conditions and Experiences of Consumers and Communities

The Federal Reserve Board announced a new article series, Consumer & Community Context, that features original analysis about the financial conditions and experiences of consumers and communities, including traditionally underserved and economically vulnerable households and neighborhoods. The series will be published periodically and each issue will have a theme. The inaugural issue covers student loans, and includes articles on the effect that rising student loan debt levels may have on homeownership rates among young adults; and the relationship between the amount of student loan debt and individuals' decisions to live in rural or urban areas.
