At this conference, the Philadelphia Fed brought together researchers doing real-time data analysis on topics related to macroeconomics, forecasting, and monetary policy. Real-time data analysis is research that accounts explicitly for data revisions. The conference focused on five topics: (1) data revisions; (2) forecasting; (3) policy analysis; (4) financial research; and (5) macroeconomic research. For each topic, researchers presented one or two papers that use real-time data.
