Come hear from senior economic adviser at the Center for Household Financial Stability, assistant vice president, and economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis William R. Emmons on April 28 at 5 p.m. ET in Louisville. Dr. Emmons will be speaking on “The Demographics of Wealth” which is a series of essays written by the staff of the St. Louis Fed’s Center for Household Financial Stability in 2015. The essays are based on the staff’s analysis of nearly a quarter-century’s worth of data collected by the Federal Reserve through its Survey of Consumer Finances. The results of the survey provide the most comprehensive picture of American families’ balance sheets and financial behavior over time.
As the title of the series implies, there appear to be connections between wealth and a person’s race (or ethnicity), level of education and age. These three factors are increasingly determining whether someone is among the thrivers, the one-quarter of the population that is accumulating wealth, or among the strugglers, the other three-quarters of the population that is not.
