U.S. Financial Data

Definitions
M1: The sum of currency held outside the vaults of depository
institutions, Federal Reserve Banks, and the U.S. Treasury; travelers
checks; and demand and other checkable deposits issued by financial
institutions (except demand deposits due to the Treasury and depository
institutions), minus cash items in process of collection and Federal
Reserve float.
M2: M1 plus savings deposits (including money market deposit
accounts) and small-denomination (less than $100,000) time deposits
issued by financial institutions; and shares in retail money market
mutual funds (funds with initial investments of less than $50,000), net
of retirement accounts.
M3: M2 plus large-denomination ($100,000 or more) time deposits;
repurchase agreements issued by depository institutions; Eurodollar
deposits, specifically, dollar-denominated deposits due to nonbank U.S.
addresses held at foreign offices of U.S. banks worldwide and all
banking offices in Canada and the United Kingdom; and institutional
money market mutual funds (funds with initial investments of $50,000
or more).

Notes
Cover Page: Economic forecasts are median responses from the
Thomson Reuters Weekly Economic Survey, which is sent out to 20
to 25 Wall Street economists each week (usually on Tuesday). These
forecasts are released on Friday—at which time, Thursday’s USFD
cover page will be updated.
Page 3: Adjusted Monetary Base equals the sum of currency in
circulation outside Federal Reserve Banks and the U.S. Treasury,
deposits of depository financial institutions at Federal Reserve Banks,
and an adjustment for the effects of changes in statutory reserve requirements on the quantity of base money held by depositories. This series
is a spliced chain index; see Anderson and Rasche (1996a, 1996b,
2001, 2003).
Page 4: Adjusted Reserves is defined as the sum of vault cash and
Federal Reserve Bank deposits held by depository institutions and an
adjustment for the effects of changes in statutory reserve requirements
on the quantity of base money held by depositories. This series, a
spliced chain index, is numerically larger than the Board of Governors’
measure, which excludes vault cash not used to satisfy statutory reserve
requirements and Federal Reserve Bank deposits used to satisfy required
clearing balance contracts; see Anderson and Rasche (1996a, 2001,
2003).
Page 5: MZM includes the zero maturity, or immediately available,
components of M3. MZM equals M2 minus small-denomination time
deposits, plus institutional money market mutual funds (that is, the
money market mutual funds included in M3 but excluded from M2).
The label MZM, or “Money, Zero Maturity,” was coined by William
Poole (1991) for this aggregate, proposed earlier by Motley (1988).
Readers are cautioned that since early 1994 the level and growth of
M1 have been depressed by retail sweep programs that reclassify
transactions deposits (demand deposits and other checkable deposits)
as savings deposits overnight, thereby reducing banks’ required
reserves; see Anderson and Rasche (2001) and
research.stlouisfed.org/aggreg/swdata.html.
Page 7: The asset groups are aggregates of the following categories
on the H.4.1: Short-term lending to financial firms and markets is
the sum of repurchase agreements, term auction credit, commercial
paper funding facility, central bank liquidity swaps, money market
investor funding facility, other loans (less AIG loan), and other assets.
Rescue operations is the sum of credit extended to AIG, and net

portfolio holdings of Maiden Lanes I, II, III, and preferred interests in
AIA Aurora and ALICO Holdings. Operations focused on long term
credit conditions is the sum of Federal Reserve agency obligations held
outright, mortgage backed securities, the term asset-backed securities
loan facility (TALF), and the TALF LLC. Traditional portfolio is the
sum of treasury securities, gold certificate account, special drawing
rights, coin, items in process of collection, and bank premises. On the
liability side, Source base is the sum of deposits of depository institutions and Federal Reserve notes. Treasury financing account appears
on the H.4.1. Traditional liabilities and capital account is the sum
of deferred availability cash items, foreign official account deposits,
U.S. Treasury general account, accrued dividends, reverse repurchase
agreements, other deposits, and capital accounts. H.4.1 data are not
seasonally adjusted.
