Dallas Fed Energy Survey
The Dallas Fed conducts a quarterly survey of about 200 oil and gas firms located or headquartered in the Eleventh District—Texas, southern New Mexico and northern Louisiana—which operate regionally, nationally or internationally.
The information collected is a valuable component of economic analysis and serves as input for Federal Open Market Committee monetary policy deliberations. Survey respondents are asked whether various measures of their firms' business activities have increased, decreased or remained unchanged relative to the prior quarter and the year-ago quarter. Responses are aggregated into diffusion indexes; positive values indicate expansion while negative values indicate contraction.
