Description

Data collection has exploded over the last decade. These new sources of nontraditional data—for example, credit card transactions and restaurant reservations—can help to fill gaps in traditional datasets by offering policymakers more timely or granular information. How were nontraditional data used during COVID-19? What are the benefits and potential pitfalls of using it in future crises? On this episode, hear from Laura J. Feiveson, chief of the Household and Business Spending Section in the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System’s Division of Research and Statistics.  Dr. Feiveson’s audio comes from an interview recorded in April 2022.
