The Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City is committed to making its website accessible to everyone, including individuals with disabilities. All pages are designed to meet or exceed the requirements of External LinkSection 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended.

While we strive to be compatible with Section 508, some content may require specialized programs to access, such as:

Adobe Acrobat Reader, version 3.0 or higher. The software can be downloaded at, free of charge.

Some documents on this website are in Microsoft Excel (.xlsx or .xls) format, Microsoft PowerPoint (.pptx or .ppt) format and Microsoft Word (.docx or .doc) format. Excel, PowerPoint and Word files can be viewed if you have any version of Excel, PowerPoint and Word installed.

The Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City must maintain the integrity of certain code and data as originally presented, and avoid using technology that may render the files unusable for the purposes of reproducibility. Code and data files generated by statistical software programs, such as C++, MatLab, Python, R, and Stata, are available only in their original format. However, these programs already have, or are developing, add-ons for accessibility. As the standards evolve, we will evolve our practices to provide files in more widely accessible formats that maintain the integrity of the code and data.

Achieving compliance with Section 508 is an ongoing process. If you require assistance or wish to report an issue related to the accessibility of any content on this website, please contact us (include the web address or URL and the specific problems you have encountered).
