Banconomics provides community bankers with essential economic data and research to support public and private decision-making.

The Banconomics website fills the need for Wisconsin banking indicators presented in an easy-to-access, yet comprehensive format for community bankers, public officials, reporters, and industry leaders.

The financial data and research found on the Banconomics website is fueled by the quarterly release of FDIC banking reports including metrics on profitability, assets quality and liquidity. 

The Banconomics website was created and maintained by the Wisconsin Bankers Association and Wisconsin Bankers Foundation.
