Consumer Payments Research Center Consumer Payments Research Center

Center’s data program transferred to the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta.

Over the last ten years, the Consumer Payments Research Center (CPRC) has served as a valuable source of data and analysis for Federal Reserve System researchers, analysts, and policymakers, and industry leaders and academics. The central achievement of the CPRC is its data program, which includes the Survey of Consumer Payment Choice and the Diary of Consumer Payment Choice.

As part of a strategic reorganization, the Consumer Payments Research Center closed on May 31, 2018. The Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta research department has assumed ownership of the CPRC’s acclaimed data program and will continue to produce and manage the Survey of Consumer Payment Choice and the Diary of Consumer Payment Choice. Survey data and reports are now available at the Atlanta Fed’s website under Consumer Payments.

The Federal Reserve Bank of Boston wishes to thank all the CPRC staff past and present for their dedication in the development and advancement of the Consumer Payments Survey and Diary products. Best wishes to our Atlanta Fed colleagues as they assume management of this vital consumer data program.
