Week ending: January 9r 1980
LIBRARY

This week the Board of Governors released a revision of
stock series and related data to incorporate benchmark
adjustments based on December 1978 and March 1979 Reports of
Condition (Call Reports). These adjustments affect data back
through mid-1978. The December 1978 adjustment for Ml raised
the level of that series about $300 million, and the March 1979
benchmark led to an additional upward adjustment of that series by
about $700 million. The revised Ml series is about $1.9 billion
higher than the original series by year's end 1979. The level of the
M2 series was raised by about $3.2 billion in December 1978 and
about $4.4 billion in March 1979. By the end of 1979, the adjusted
M2 series was about $5.5 billion greater than the previously reported
series.

*M*ley

The benchmark adjustments had little impact on the
annual growth rates of Ml and M2. On a quarterly basis, growth
rates of Ml changed by less than one percentage point, with the
largest revision occurring in the first quarter of 1979. In that
period, Ml declined at a 2.1 percent annual rate on the original basis
and a 1.3 percent rate on the revised basis. The largest revision in
the quarterly growth rates of M2 also occurred in the first quarter
of 1979, changing from a 1.8 percent rate of increase on the original
basis to a 2.9 percent rate of increase on the revised basis. Thus,
revised data indicate a more modest slowing in both Ml and M2
growth in the beginning of 1979 them was evident in the original
figures.
