We are now accepting research submissions for the Second CFPB Research Conference on Consumer Finance, which will be held this winter.
We encourage the submission of a variety of research. This includes, but is not limited to, work on: the ways consumers and households make decisions about borrowing, saving, and financial risk-taking; how various forms of credit (mortgage, student loans, credit cards, installment loans, etc.) affect household well-being; the structure and functioning of consumer financial markets; distinct and underserved populations; and relevant innovations in modeling or data. A particular area of interest for the CFPB is the dynamics of households’ balance sheets.
All submissions should be made in electronic PDF format to CFPB_ResearchConference@consumerfinance.gov by Friday, Aug. 26, 2016.
