Instructors at New York University’s Stern School of Business (fans of FRED) created these clear and concise video tutorials to teach their own students how to use FRED in their coursework. Each tutorial, from 3 to 9 minutes long, also explains a little bit about the economics behind the data.
FRED has just added 168 series from the Manufacturing Business Outlook Survey and 64 series from the Nonmanufacturing Business Outlook Survey from the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia. These releases include diffusion indexes and the survey results used to construct those diffusion indexes.
