    H41: Change to H.4.1, removal of table related to TALF LLC (previously numbered as table 5)
    The Board's H.4.1 statistical release, "Factors Affecting Reserve Balances of Depository Institutions and Condition Statement of Federal Reserve Banks," has been modified to reflect the removal of table 5 "Information on Principal Accounts of TALF LLC" and the line "Asset-backed securities held by TALF LLC" from table 2 "Maturity Distribution of Securities, Loans, and Selected Other Assets and Liabilities." Both have been removed because the final Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility loan was repaid on October 29, 2014, and the net portfolio holdings of TALF LLC were reduced to zero on November 6, 2014.

    In order to provide information on amounts from the previous year, amounts for the "Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility" and the "Net portfolio holdings of TALF LLC" continue to be shown on table 1 "Factors Affecting Reserve Balances of Depository Institutions," and amounts for the net portfolio holdings of TALF LLC also continue to be shown on the renumbered table 5 "Consolidated Statement of Condition of All Federal Reserve Banks."

    Industrial production and capacity utilization data for June 2014 are now available.

    Industrial production increased 0.2 percent in June and advanced at an annual rate of 5.5 percent for the second quarter of 2014. In June, manufacturing output edged up 0.1 percent for its fifth consecutive monthly gain, while the production at mines moved up 0.8 percent and the output of utilities declined 0.3 percent. For the second quarter as a whole, manufacturing production rose at an annual rate of 6.7 percent, while mining output increased at an annual rate of 18.8 percent because of gains in the extraction of oil and gas; by contrast, the output of utilities fell at an annual rate of 21.4 percent following a weather-related increase of 15.6 percent in the first quarter. At 103.9 percent of its 2007 average, total industrial production in June was 4.3 percent above its level of a year earlier. The capacity utilization rate for total industry was unchanged in June at 79.1 percent, a rate that is 1.0 percentage point below its long-run (1972-2013) average.

    G17: Revised Estimates of Industrial Capacity

    The estimates for industrial capacity in 2013 were revised for today's G.17 release. The revisions reflect updated measures of physical capacity from various government and trade sources as well as updated estimates of capital spending by industry. Capacity for the industrial sector, measured from the fourth quarter of 2013 to the fourth quarter of 2014, is now expected to increase 3.1 percent, a rate that is 0.1 percentage point faster than previously estimated. Manufacturing capacity is expected to rise 2.2 percent in 2014, a pace 0.4 percentage point less than in previous estimates; the downward revisions to capacity were widespread among manufacturing industries. The increase in mining capacity for 2014 has been revised up 3.4 percentage points to 9.2 percent, entirely as a result of an upward revision to the capacity for oil and gas extraction. The gain in capacity for utilities, at 1.0 percent, is unrevised.

    Industrial production and capacity utilization data for March 2014 are now available.

    Industrial production increased 0.7 percent in March after having advanced 1.2 percent in February. The rise in February was higher than previously reported primarily because of stronger gains for durable goods manufacturing and for mining. For the first quarter as a whole, industrial production moved up at an annual rate of 4.4 percent, just slightly slower than in the fourth quarter of 2013. In March, the output of manufacturing rose 0.5 percent, the output of utilities increased 1.0 percent, and the output of mines gained 1.5 percent. At 103.2 percent of its 2007 average, total industrial production in March was 3.8 percent above its level of a year earlier. Capacity utilization for total industry increased in March to 79.2 percent, a rate that is 0.9 percentage point below its long-run (1972-2013) average but 1.2 percentage points higher than a year prior.

    G17: G.17 Annual Revision Released

    The Federal Reserve Board issued its annual revision to the index of industrial production (IP) and the related measures of capacity and capacity utilization. Data for the new series are available on the Board's public website and the Data Download Program.

    The Federal Reserve has revised its index of industrial production (IP) and the related measures of capacity and capacity utilization. The annual revision for 2014 was more limited than in recent years because the source data required to extend the annual benchmark indexes of production into 2012 were mostly unavailable. Consequently, the IP indexes published with this revision are very little changed from previous estimates. Measured from fourth quarter to fourth quarter, total IP is now reported to have increased about 3 1/3 percent in each year from 2011 to 2013. Relative to the rates of change for total IP published earlier, the new rates are 1/2 percentage point higher in 2012 and little changed in any other year. Total IP still shows a peak-to-trough decline of about 17 percent for the most recent recession, and it still returned to its pre-recession peak in the fourth quarter of 2013.

    G17: G.17 Data for February 2014 are now available

    Industrial production and capacity utilization data for February 2014 are now available.

    Industrial production increased 0.6 percent in February after having declined 0.2 percent in January. In February, manufacturing output rose 0.8 percent and nearly reversed its decline of 0.9 percent in January, which resulted, in part, from extreme weather. The gain in factory production in February was the largest since last August. The output of utilities edged down 0.2 percent following a jump of 3.8 percent in January, and the production at mines moved up 0.3 percent. At 101.6 percent of its 2007 average, total industrial production in February was 2.8 percent above its level of a year earlier. The capacity utilization rate for total industry increased in February to 78.8 percent, a rate that is 1.3 percentage points below its long-run (1972-2013) average.

    G17: G.17 Data for January 2014 are now available

    Industrial production and capacity utilization data for January 2014 are now available.

    Industrial production decreased 0.3 percent in January after having risen 0.3 percent in December. In January, manufacturing output fell 0.8 percent, partly because of the severe weather that curtailed production in some regions of the country. Additionally, manufacturing production is now reported to have been lower in the fourth quarter; the index is now estimated to have advanced at an annual rate of 4.6 percent in the fourth quarter rather than 6.2 percent. The output of utilities rose 4.1 percent in January, as demand for heating was boosted by unseasonably cold temperatures. The production at mines declined 0.9 percent following a gain of 1.8 percent in December. At 101.0 percent of its 2007 average, total industrial production in January was 2.9 percent above its level of a year earlier. The capacity utilization rate for total industry decreased in January to 78.5 percent, a rate that is 1.6 percentage points below its long-run (1972-2013) average.

    FOR: Upcoming changes to the Household Debt Service and Financial Obligations Ratios
    Starting with the 2013: Q3 Financial Obligations Ratio (FOR) and Debt Service Ratio (DSR) publication, to be released December 2013, we will publish two subcomponents of the DSR and cease publication of the four existing subcomponents of the FOR. The first new statistic is the Mortgage DSR, defined as the total quarterly required mortgage payments divided by total quarterly disposable personal income. The second new statistic is the Consumer DSR, defined as the total quarterly required consumer debt payments divided by total quarterly disposable personal income. The DSR is the sum of the Mortgage DSR and the Consumer DSR. Most users should find the new DSR components more useful analytically than the former FOR components. The FOR components are being eliminated because of challenges inherent in measuring them accurately. Publication of the total FOR will continue.

    G17: Revised Estimates of Industrial Capacity

    The estimates for industrial capacity in 2013 were revised for today's G.17 release. The revisions reflect updated measures of physical capacity from various government and trade sources as well as updated estimates of industry capital spending. Capacity for the industrial sector, measured from the fourth quarter of 2012 to the fourth quarter of 2013, is now expected to increase 1.8 percent, a rate that is 0.1 percentage point slower than previously estimated. Manufacturing capacity is expected to rise 1.6 percent in 2013, a pace 0.2 percentage point less than in previous estimates. Relative to the previous estimates, faster gains in the high-technology and motor vehicles industries have been more than offset by slower gains elsewhere in manufacturing. The increase in mining capacity for 2013 has been revised upward by 0.5 percentage point to 4.4 percent, while the change in capacity for utilities, at 0.9 percent, is 0.2 percentage point faster than previously estimated.

    H41: Unamortized Premium, Unamortized Discount and Foreign Denominated Assets Breakout

    The Board's H.4.1 statistical release, "Factors Affecting Reserve Balances of Depository Institutions and Condition Statement of Federal Reserve Banks," has been modified to separately present the amounts of unamortized premiums and unamortized discounts on securities held outright, as well as the amount of foreign currency denominated asset holdings.

    The amounts shown in table 1 of this release as "Unamortized premiums on securities held outright" and "Foreign currency denominated assets" were previously included as components of "Other Federal Reserve assets." The footnote accompanying "Other Federal Reserve assets" in table 1 has been updated to identify the remaining major components, which include accrued interest, other accounts receivable, and bank premises. The amount shown in table 1 of this release as "Unamortized discounts on securities held outright" was previously included as a component of "Other liabilities and capital." The release also reflects this additional detail on tables 8 and 9.

    G17: G.17 Annual Revision Released

    The Federal Reserve Board issued its annual revision to the index of industrial production (IP) and the related measures of capacity and capacity utilization. Data for the new series are available on the Board's public website and the Data Download Program.

    The Federal Reserve has revised its index of industrial production (IP) and the related measures of capacity and capacity utilization. Measured from fourth quarter to fourth quarter, total IP is now reported to have increased 0.7 percentage point less in 2011 than was previously published. The revisions to IP for other years were smaller: Compared to the previous estimates, industrial production fell slightly less in 2008 and 2009 and increased slightly less in 2010 and 2012. At 97.7 percent of its 2007 average, the index in the fourth quarter of 2012 now stands 0.4 percent below its previous estimate. With these revisions, IP is still estimated to have advanced about 6 percent in 2010, the first full year following the trough in June 2009 of the most recent recession, but it is now estimated to have risen about 3 percent both in 2011 and in 2012. Since the trough of the recession, total IP has reversed about 90 percent of its peak-to-trough decline.

    H6: Money Stock Revisions
    The Federal Reserve has revised the measures of the money stock and its components to incorporate the results of the Federal Reserve's annual review of seasonal factors and a new quarterly benchmark. This release includes revised monthly and weekly seasonal factors as well as comparisons of the revised monetary aggregates with previously published data. The revisions to the seasonal factors resulted in a lower growth rate for seasonally adjusted M2 in the first half of 2012 and a higher growth rate for seasonally adjusted M2 in the second half.

    The benchmark incorporates minor revisions to data reported in the quarterly deposit reports, and it takes account of deposit data from Call Reports for banks and thrift institutions that are not weekly or quarterly deposit reporters. These revisions to deposit data start in 2011. In addition, this release incorporates data from Call Reports on the amount of small-denomination time deposits held in individual retirement accounts (IRAs) and Keogh accounts; related revisions to deposit data start in 2011. The benchmark also incorporates revisions to IRA and Keogh balances held at retail and institutional money market mutual funds; these revisions to data on money market mutual funds begin in 2007. This release also incorporates the receipt of historical information from other sources of data.

    Seasonally adjusted measures of the monetary aggregates and components incorporate revised seasonal factors, which were derived from data through December 2012. Monthly seasonal factors were estimated using the X-12-ARIMA procedure. The effects of both the new benchmark and the revisions to seasonal factors on the growth rates of M1 and M2 are outlined in appendix tables 6 and 7.

    Historical data, updated each week, are available with the H.6 statistical release at www.federalreserve.gov/releases.

Manufacturing output advanced 0.8 percent in December following a gain of 1.3 percent in November; production edged up at an annual rate of 0.2 percent in the fourth quarter. The output at mines rose 0.6 percent in December, and the output of utilities fell 4.8 percent as unseasonably warm weather held down the demand for heating. At 98.1 percent of its 2007 average, total industrial production in December was 2.2 percent above its year-earlier level. Capacity utilization for total industry moved up 0.1 percentage point to 78.8 percent, a rate 1.5 percentage points below its long-run (1972--2011) average.

    E2: Changes to Items Report on the Release for December, 2012
    On March 26, 2012, the Federal Reserve Board under OMB delegated authority approved the request to revise the data collected on the voluntary Survey of Terms of Lending (the source for the data used to produce the E.2 release). Effective with this release (for data collected for the week of November 5-12), the number of banks that is reporting the new items is sufficient to calculate meaningful summary statistics for those responses. Several changes, summarized below, have been made to the E.2 release.
    1. The minimum loan size reported on the survey is now $10,000, an increase from the previous minimum loan size of $7,500. This new minimum is reflected on all tables of the E.2 release.
    2. Loans guaranteed, either in part or in whole, by the Small Business Association (SBA) are now identified. The percent of loans backed by the SBA are now shown on tables 1-6. A new table summarizing the terms of loans backed by the SBA has been added (table 7).
    3. Loans made under syndication or participation are now identified. The percent of loans made under these arrangements are now shown on tables 1-6. A new table summarizing the terms of loans made under participation or syndication has been added (table 8).

    Industrial production and capacity utilization data for November 2012 are now available.

    Industrial production increased 1.1 percent in November after having fallen 0.7 percent in October. The gain in November is estimated to have largely resulted from a recovery in production for industries that had been negatively affected by Hurricane Sandy, which hit the Northeast region in late October. In November, manufacturing output increased 1.1 percent after having decreased 1.0 percent in October; in addition to the storm-related rebound, a sizable rise in the production of motor vehicles and parts boosted factory output in November. The output of utilities advanced 1.0 percent, and production at mines rose 0.8 percent. At 97.5 percent of its 2007 average, total industrial production in November was 2.5 percent above its year-earlier level. Capacity utilization for total industry increased 0.7 percentage point to 78.4 percent, a rate 1.9 percentage points below its long-run (1972--2011) average.

    H3: Annual Review of Break and Seasonal Factors for Reserves and the Monetary Base
    For release at
    4:30 P.M. EST
    November 29, 2012

    SPECIAL NOTICE

    Data on reserves and the monetary base have been revised to reflect the result of annual reviews of seasonal factors and break factors. Revisions to seasonal factors start in January 1999, while revisions to break factors begin in January 2011. Break factors remove discontinuities (or "breaks") associated with regulatory changes in reserve requirements, such as the annual indexations of the low-reserve tranche and the reserve requirement exemption.[1] The maximum revision to total reserves, nonborrowed reserves, required reserves, and the monetary base in any maintenance period was $956 million; most revisions were less than $500 million.

    A more detailed description of the methods for constructing break factors and seasonal factors is available under "Annual review of break and seasonal factors" on the Federal Reserve's website. Historical data, updated each week, are available from the Data Download Program website.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1. The Monetary Control Act of 1980 established a reserve ratio of 3 percent against the first $25 million in net transaction deposits (low-reserve tranche) at each depository institution. Since 1982, the low-reserve tranche has been indexed each January by 80 percent of the previous year's (June 30 to June 30) growth rate of net transaction deposits at all depository institutions. For all reserve maintenance periods ending in 2012, the low-reserve tranche is $71.0 million, rising to $79.5 million for maintenance periods ending in 2013.
    Under the Garn-St Germain Depository Institutions Act of 1982, the first $2 million of reservable liabilities of each depository institution was exempted from reserve requirements. Since 1983, this exemption amount has been indexed each year by 80 percent of the rate of increase of the reservable liabilities at all depository institutions over the preceding year (June 30 to June 30). For all reserve maintenance periods ending in 2012, the reserve requirement exemption is $11.5 million, rising to $12.4 million for maintenance periods ending in 2013.

    Industrial production declined 0.4 percent in October after having increased 0.2 percent in September. Hurricane Sandy, which held down production in the Northeast region at the end of October, is estimated to have reduced the rate of change in total output by nearly 1 percentage point. The largest estimated storm-related effects included reductions in the output of utilities, of chemicals, of food, of transportation equipment, and of computers and electronic products. In October, the index for manufacturing decreased 0.9 percent; excluding storm-related effects, factory output was roughly unchanged from September. The output of utilities edged down 0.1 percent in October, and production at mines advanced 1.5 percent. At 96.6 percent of its 2007 average, total industrial production in October was 1.7 percent above its year-earlier level. Capacity utilization for total industry decreased 0.4 percentage point to 77.8 percent, a rate 2.5 percentage points below its long-run (1972--2011) average.

    Industrial production and capacity utilization data for September 2012 are now available.

    Industrial production rose 0.4 percent in September after having fallen 1.4 percent in August. For the third quarter as a whole, industrial production declined at an annual rate of 0.4 percent. Manufacturing output increased 0.2 percent in September but moved down at an annual rate of 0.9 percent in the third quarter. Production at mines advanced 0.9 percent in September, and the output of utilities moved up 1.5 percent. Roughly 0.3 percentage point of the decline in overall industrial production in August reflected the effect of precautionary idling of production in late August along the Gulf of Mexico in anticipation of Hurricane Isaac, and part of the rise in September is a result of the subsequent resumption of activity at idled facilities. At 97.0 percent of its 2007 average, total industrial production in September was 2.8 percent above its year-earlier level. Capacity utilization for total industry moved up 0.3 percentage point to 78.3 percent, a rate 2.0 percentage points below its long-run (1972-2011) average.

    G17: G.17 Data for August 2012 are now available

    Industrial production and capacity utilization data for August 2012 are now available.

    Industrial production fell 1.2 percent in August after having risen 0.5 percent in July. Hurricane Isaac restrained output in the Gulf Coast region at the end of August, reducing the rate of change in total industrial production by an estimated 0.3 percentage point. Manufacturing output decreased 0.7 percent in August after having risen 0.4 percent in both June and July. Precautionary shutdowns of oil and gas rigs in the Gulf of Mexico in advance of the hurricane contributed to a drop of 1.8 percent in the output of mines for August. The output of utilities declined 3.6 percent. At 96.8 percent of its 2007 average, total industrial production in August was 2.8 percent above its year-earlier level. Capacity utilization for total industry moved down 1.0 percentage point to 78.2 percent, a rate 2.1 percentage points below its long-run (1972--2011) average.

    Industrial production was unchanged in March for a second month but rose at an annual rate of 5.4 percent in the first quarter of 2012. Manufacturing output declined 0.2 percent in March but jumped 10.4 percent at an annual rate in the first quarter. The gain in manufacturing output in the first quarter was broadly based: Even excluding motor vehicles and parts, which jumped at an annual rate of nearly 40 percent, manufacturing output moved up at an annual rate of 8.3 percent and output for all but a few major industries increased 5 percent or more. In March, production at mines rose 0.2 percent and the output of utilities gained 1.5 percent. For the quarter, however, the output of utilities dropped at an annual rate of 13.8 percent, largely as a result of unseasonably warm temperatures over the past several months, while the output of mining fell 5.4 percent. At 96.6 percent of its 2007 average, total industrial production for March was 3.8 percent above its year-earlier level. The rate of capacity utilization for total industry edged down to 78.6 percent, a rate 2.1 percentage points above its level from a year earlier but 1.7 percentage points below its long-run (1972--2011) average.

    G17: G.17 Annual Revision

    The Federal Reserve Board issued its annual revision to the index of industrial production (IP) and the related measures of capacity and capacity utilization. Data for the new series are available on the Board's public website and the Data Download Program.

    The Federal Reserve has revised its index of industrial production (IP) and the related measures of capacity and capacity utilization. Measured from fourth quarter to fourth quarter, total IP is now reported to have dropped 0.3 percentage point more in 2009; its gains in both 2010 and 2011 were essentially unchanged from what was previously reported. With these minor revisions, the broad contour of total IP in recent years is similar to previous estimates. Since the trough of the last recession in June 2009, total IP has reversed about three-fourths of its peak-to-trough decline.

    Capacity utilization rates for recent years were revised down. The revisions show that the rate of capacity utilization for total industry was 0.7 percentage point lower than previously estimated in the fourth quarter of 2010 and 0.4 percentage point lower in 2011, primarily as a result of small upward revisions to estimates of industrial capacity. The capacity utilization rate for the fourth quarter of 2008 was revised down 0.3 percentage point, and the rate in the final quarter of 2009 was revised down about 0.8 percentage point.

    Industrial production and capacity utilization data for January 2012 are now available.

    Industrial production was unchanged in January, as a gain of 0.7 percent in manufacturing was offset by declines in mining and utilities. Within manufacturing, the index for motor vehicles and parts jumped 6.8 percent and the index for other manufacturing industries increased 0.3 percent. The output of utilities fell 2.5 percent, as demand for heating was held down by temperatures that moved further above seasonal norms; the output of mines declined 1.8 percent. Total industrial production is now reported to have advanced 1.0 percent in December; the initial estimate had been an increase of 0.4 percent. This large upward revision reflected higher output for many manufacturing and mining industries. At 95.9 percent of its 2007 average, total industrial production in January was 3.4 percent above its level of a year earlier. The capacity utilization rate for total industry decreased to 78.5 percent, a rate 1.8 percentage points below its long-run (1972--2011) average.

    H6: Money Stock Revisions
    The Federal Reserve has revised the measures of the money stock and its components to incorporate the results of the Federal Reserve's annual review of seasonal factors and a new quarterly benchmark. This release includes revised monthly and weekly seasonal factors as well as comparisons of the revised monetary aggregates with previously published data. The revisions to the seasonal factors resulted in a higher growth rate for seasonally adjusted M2 in the first half of 2011 and a lower growth rate for seasonally adjusted M2 in the second half.

    The benchmark incorporates minor revisions to data reported in the weekly and quarterly deposit reports, and it takes account of deposit data from Call Reports for banks and thrift institutions that are not weekly or quarterly deposit reporters. These revisions to deposit data start in 2002. In addition, this release incorporates data from Call Reports on the amount of small-denomination time deposits held in individual retirement accounts (IRAs) and Keogh accounts; related revisions to deposit data start in 2006. The benchmark also incorporates revisions to IRA and Keogh balances held at retail and institutional money market mutual funds; these revisions to data on money market mutual funds begin in 1996. This release also incorporates the receipt of historical information from other sources of data.

    Seasonally adjusted measures of the monetary aggregates and components incorporate revised seasonal factors, which were derived from data through December 2011. Monthly seasonal factors were estimated using the X-12-ARIMA procedure. The effects of both the new benchmark and the revisions to seasonal factors on the growth rates of M1 and M2 are outlined in appendix tables 6 and 7.

    Historical data, updated each week, are available with the H.6 statistical release at www.federalreserve.gov/releases.

    H3: Annual Review of Break and Seasonal Factors for Reserves and the Monetary Base
    For release at
    4:30 P.M. EDT
    October 27, 2011

    SPECIAL NOTICE

    Data on reserves and the monetary base have been revised to reflect the result
    of annual reviews of seasonal factors and break factors. Revisions to seasonal
    factors start in January 1999, while revisions to break factors begin in January
    2010. Break factors remove discontinuities (or "breaks") associated with regulatory
    changes in reserve requirements, such as the annual indexations of the low-reserve
    tranche and the reserve requirement exemption.1 The maximum revision to total
    reserves, nonborrowed reserves, required reserves, and the monetary base in any
    maintenance period was $2.0 billion; most revisions were less than $700 million.

    A more detailed description of the methods for constructing break factors and
    seasonal factors is available under "Annual review of break and seasonal factors"
    on the Federal Reserve's website (http://www.federalreserve.gov/releases/h3/hist/).
    Historical data, updated each week, are available there as well.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1. The Monetary Control Act of 1980 established a reserve ratio of 3 percent
    against the first $25 million in net transaction deposits (low-reserve tranche) at
    each depository institution. Since 1982, the low-reserve tranche has been indexed
    each January by 80 percent of the previous year's (June 30 to June 30) growth rate
    of net transaction deposits at all depository institutions. For all reserve
    maintenance periods ending in 2011, the low-reserve tranche is $58.8 million,
    rising to $71.0 million for maintenance periods ending in 2012.
    Under the Garn-St Germain Depository Institutions Act of 1982, the first $2
    million of reservable liabilities of each depository institution was exempted from
    reserve requirements. Since 1983, this exemption amount has been indexed each year
    by 80 percent of the rate of increase of the reservable liabilities at all
    depository institutions over the preceding year (June 30 to June 30). For all
    reserve maintenance periods ending in 2011, the reserve requirement exemption is
    $10.7 million, rising to $11.5 million for maintenance periods ending in 2012.

    Industrial production and capacity utilization data for July 2011 are now available.

    Industrial production advanced 0.9 percent in July. Although the index was revised down in April, primarily as a result of a downward revision to the output of utilities, stronger manufacturing output led to upward revisions to production in both May and June. Manufacturing output rose 0.6 percent in July, as the index for motor vehicles and parts jumped 5.2 percent and production elsewhere moved up 0.3 percent. The output of mines advanced 1.1 percent, and the output of utilities increased 2.8 percent, as the extreme heat during the month boosted air conditioning usage. At 94.2 percent of its 2007 average, total industrial production for July was 3.7 percentage points above its year-earlier level. The capacity utilization rate for total industry climbed to 77.5 percent, a rate 2.2 percentage points above the rate from a year earlier but 2.9 percentage points below its long-run (1972--2010) average.

    Industrial production increased 0.2 percent in June after having edged down 0.1 percent in May. For the second quarter as a whole, total industrial production increased at an annual rate of 0.8 percent. Manufacturing output was unchanged in June. In the second quarter, supply chain disruptions following the earthquake in Japan curtailed the production of motor vehicles and parts and restrained output in related industries; the production index for overall manufacturing was little changed for the quarter. The output of mines rose 0.5 percent in June, while the output of utilities climbed 0.9 percent. At 93.1 percent of its 2007 average, total industrial production in June was 3.4 percent above its year-earlier level.

    H41: Correction to the average amount outstanding of securities lent under the Term Securities Lending Facility for the week ending September 24, 2008

    The Board's H.4.1 statistical release ("Factors Affecting Reserve Balances of
    Depository Institutions and Condition Statement of Federal Reserve Banks") for
    September 25, 2008, overstated the average amount outstanding of securities
    lent under the Term Securities Lending Facility (TSLF). On September 18,
    2008, a set of securities lent under the TSLF was returned to the Federal
    Reserve, but the return of these securities was not reflected in the reported
    value for the TSLF until September 24, 2008. As a result, corrections to
    table 1A, Memorandum Items, have been made to reflect the earlier return of
    these securities on September 18, 2008. Under the TSLF, the Federal Reserve
    maintained ownership of securities lent, and the lending of securities did not
    directly affect the Federal Reserve's assets and liabilities.

    In table 1A, the weekly average value of the "Term facility" for the week
    ended Wednesday, September 24, 2008, was corrected from $185,636 million to
    $174,045 million. Also in table 1A, the weekly average value of "Securities

In May, manufacturing production rose 0.4 percent after having fallen 0.5 percent in April. The output of motor vehicles and parts has been held down in the past two months because of supply chain disruptions following the earthquake in Japan. Excluding motor vehicles and parts, manufacturing output advanced 0.6 percent in May and edged down 0.1 percent in April; the decrease in April in part reflected production lost because of tornadoes in the South at the end of the month. Outside of manufacturing, the output of mines increased 0.5 percent in May, while the output of utilities fell 2.8 percent. At 93.0 percent of its 2007 average, total industrial production in May was 3.4 percent above its year-earlier level.

    G17: G.17 Data for February 2011 are now available

    Industrial production and capacity utilization data for February 2011 are now available.

    Industrial production declined 0.1 percent in February after having risen 0.3 percent in January; output in January was previously estimated to have edged down 0.1 percent. Manufacturing output increased 0.4 percent in February, and the gain in January was revised up to 0.9 percent. Outside of manufacturing, the output of mines rose 0.8 percent in February, which more than reversed its decline in January. However, the output of utilities fell 4.5 percent--the drop reflected unseasonably warm weather in February, which reduced the demand for heating after two months of unseasonably cold temperatures. At 95.5 percent of its 2007 average, total industrial production was 5.6 percent above its year-earlier level. The capacity utilization rate for total industry edged down 0.1 percentage point to 76.3 percent, a rate 4.2 percentage points below its average from 1972 to 2010.

    H3: Closing of the American International Group, Inc. (AIG) Capitalization Plan
    For release at
    4:30 p.m. EST
    January 27, 2011

    The Board's H.3 statistical release, "Aggregate Reserves of Depository
    Institutions and the Monetary Base," reflects the closing of the American
    International Group, Inc. (AIG), recapitalization plan, which occurred on
    January 14, 2011. The recapitalization plan was designed to restructure and
    facilitate repayment of the financial support provided to AIG by the U.S.
    Department of the Treasury and the Federal Reserve. Upon closing of the
    recapitalization plan, the credit extended to AIG by the Federal Reserve Bank
    of New York under the revolving credit facility (AIG loan), including accrued
    interest and fees, was repaid in full. The AIG loan is reported in the "Credit
    extended to American International Group, Inc., net" category of total and
    other borrowings from the Federal Reserve, which is shown in table 1a of the
    H.3 statistical release.

    The average value of "Credit extended to American International Group, Inc.,
    net" for the two-week period ending January 26, 2011, reflects the closing of
    the AIG recapitalization plan. The average value for the two-week period
    ending January 26, 2011, is greater than zero because the AIG loan was repaid
    in full on January 14, the second day of this two-week period. Table 1a will
    continue to show historical values for "Credit extended to American
    International Group, Inc., net" to provide a complete disaggregation of total
    and other borrowings from the Federal Reserve for past periods.

    H41: Closing of the American International Group, Inc. (AIG) recapitalization plan

    For release at
    4:30 P.M. Eastern Time
    January 20, 2011


    The Board's H.4.1 statistical release, "Factors Affecting Reserve Balances of Depository Institutions and Condition Statement of Federal Reserve Banks," reflects the closing of the American International Group, Inc. (AIG) recapitalization plan, which occurred on January 14, 2011. The recapitalization plan was designed to restructure and facilitate repayment of the financial support provided to AIG by the U.S. Department of the Treasury (Treasury) and the Federal Reserve. Upon closing of the recapitalization plan, the cash proceeds from certain asset dispositions, specifically the initial public offering of AIA Group Limited (AIA) and the sale of American Life Insurance Company (ALICO), were used first to repay in full the credit extended to AIG by the FRBNY under the revolving credit facility (AIG loan), including accrued interest and fees, and then to redeem a portion of the FRBNY's preferred interests in ALICO Holdings LLC taken earlier by the FRBNY in satisfaction of a portion of the AIG loan. The remaining FRBNY preferred interests in ALICO Holdings LLC and AIA Aurora LLC, valued at approximately $20 billion, were purchased by AIG through a draw on the Treasury's Series F preferred stock commitment and then transferred by AIG to the Treasury as consideration for the draw on the available Series F funds.

    The weekly average values shown in table 1 reflect, as of January 14, 2011, the repayment by AIG of the "Credit extended to American International Group, Inc., net" and the "Preferred interests in AIA Aurora LLC and ALICO Holdings LLC," and the distribution of the "Funds from American International Group, Inc. asset dispositions, held as agent."

    The H.4.1 statistical release continues to show average amounts for "Credit extended to American International Group, Inc., net," "Preferred interests in AIA Aurora LLC and ALICO Holdings LLC," and "Funds from American International Group, Inc. asset dispositions, held as agent," even though all funding commitments to AIG have been terminated, to provide a complete disaggregation of changes in assets and liabilities from the corresponding week one year ago.

    Industrial production and capacity utilization data for December 2010 are now available.

    Industrial production increased 0.8 percent in December after having risen 0.3 percent in November. The rate of change for industrial production was revised down in November but revised up in September and October; the net effect of the revisions from July to November left the level of industrial production in November slightly higher than was previously reported. For the fourth quarter as a whole, industrial production increased at an annual rate of 2.4 percent, a slower pace than in the earlier quarters of the year. In the manufacturing sector, output moved up 0.4 percent in December with gains in both durables and nondurables. Excluding motor vehicles and parts, factory output increased 0.5 percent. The output of mines advanced 0.4 percent; the output of utilities surged 4.3 percent, as unusually cold weather boosted the demand for heating. At 94.9 percent of its 2007 average, total industrial production in December was 5.9 percent above its level of a year earlier. The capacity utilization rate for total industry rose to 76.0 percent, a rate 4.6 percentage points below its average from 1972 to 2009.

    H41: Change in Presentation of Reserve Bank Remittances to the U.S. Treasury

    For release at
    4:30 P.M. Eastern time
    January 6, 2011

    The Board's H.4.1 statistical release, "Factors Affecting Reserve Balances of Depository Institutions and Condition Statement of Federal Reserve Banks," has been modified to reflect an accounting policy change that will result in a more transparent presentation of each Federal Reserve Bank's capital accounts and distribution of residual earnings to the U.S. Treasury. Although the accounting policy change does not affect the amount of residual earnings that the Federal Reserve Banks distribute to the U.S. Treasury, it may affect the timing of the distributions. Consistent with long-standing policy of the Board of Governors, the residual earnings of each Federal Reserve Bank, after providing for the costs of operations, payment of dividends, and the amount necessary to equate surplus with capital paid-in, are distributed weekly to the U.S. Treasury. The distribution of residual earnings to the U.S. Treasury is made in accordance with the Board of Governor's authority to levy an interest charge on the Federal Reserve Banks based on the amount of each Federal Reserve Bank's outstanding Federal Reserve notes.

    Effective January 1, 2011, as a result of the accounting policy change, on a daily basis each Federal Reserve Bank will adjust the balance in its surplus account to equate surplus with capital paid-in and, in addition, will adjust its liability for the distribution of residual earnings to the U.S. Treasury. Previously these adjustments were made only at year-end. Adjusting the surplus account balance and the liability for the distribution of residual earnings to the U.S. Treasury is consistent with the existing requirement for daily accrual of many other items that appear in the Board's H.4.1 statistical release. The liability for the distribution of residual earnings to the U.S. Treasury will be reported as "Interest on Federal Reserve notes due to U.S. Treasury" on table 10. Previously, the amount necessary to equate surplus with capital paid-in and the amount of the liability for the distribution of residual earnings to the U.S. Treasury were included in "Other capital accounts" in table 9 and in "Other capital" in table 10.

    Industrial production and capacity utilization data for November 2010 are now available.

    Industrial production increased 0.4 percent in November after a decline of 0.2 percent in October. The rate of change for industrial production was revised down in October but up in September; the net effect of the revisions from June to October left the level of industrial production in October about the same as was previously reported. In the manufacturing sector, output advanced 0.3 percent in November with gains in both durables and nondurables. The gains among durable goods industries were particularly broad-based; only the production of motor vehicles and parts decreased substantially. Excluding motor vehicles and parts, overall factory output advanced 0.7 percent. The output of mines edged lower, but the output of utilities moved up 1.9 percent as the return of more seasonal temperatures boosted the demand for heating. At 93.9 percent of its 2007 average, total industrial production in November was 5.4 percent above its level a year earlier. The capacity utilization rate for total industry rose to 75.2 percent, a rate 5.4 percentage points below its average from 1972 to 2009.

    For release at
    4:30 P.M. EDT
    November 4, 2010


    The Board's H.4.1 statistical release, "Factors Affecting Reserve Balances of Depository Institutions and Condition Statement of Federal Reserve Banks," has been modified to report the funds held as agent by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (FRBNY) related to the recapitalization plan announced by American International Group, Inc. (AIG) on September 30, 2010. The recapitalization plan, which is expected to close by the end of the first quarter of 2011, is designed to restructure and facilitate repayment of the financial support provided to AIG by the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the FRBNY. Pending the closing of the recapitalization plan, the cash proceeds from certain AIG asset dispositions will be held by the FRBNY as agent.

    At the closing of the recapitalization plan, the cash proceeds from certain asset dispositions, most notably the initial public offering of AIA Group Limited (AIA) and the sale of American Life Insurance Company (ALICO), will be used first to repay in full the credit extended to AIG by the FRBNY under the revolving credit facility (AIG loan) and then to retire a portion of the FRBNY's preferred interests in AIA Aurora LLC and ALICO Holdings LLC (preferred interests) taken earlier by the FRBNY in satisfaction of a portion of the AIG loan. Alternatively, if the recapitalization plan is terminated under the terms of the plan, then the proceeds from the initial public offering of AIA and the sale of ALICO will be used to redeem the preferred interests in accordance with the AIA Aurora LLC and ALICO Holdings LLC limited liability company agreements, and any excess proceeds from these transactions, as well as proceeds from the disposition of other assets, will be used to repay the AIG loan.

    The FRBNY began to hold as agent funds from the cash proceeds from the initial public offering of AIA on October 29, 2010, and from the cash proceeds from the sale of ALICO on November 1, 2010.

    The funds held by the FRBNY as agent from the disposition of the AIG assets are reported in table 1 and are included in "Other liabilities and accrued dividends" in table 9 and in table 10.

    For Release at
    4:30 P.M. Eastern time
    June 24, 2010


    The Board's H.4.1 statistical release, "Factors Affecting Reserve Balances of Depository Institutions and Condition Statement of Federal Reserve Banks," has been modified to include information on term deposits held by depository institutions. Term deposits are a new tool that the Federal Reserve could use to manage the aggregate quantity of reserve balances held by depository institutions.

    On May 28, 2010, the Federal Reserve announced a schedule for three small-value auctions of term deposits to be offered through its Term Deposit Facility (TDF). These auctions are intended to ensure the effective operation of the TDF and to help eligible institutions become familiar with the term deposit program. The first auction was conducted on June 14, 2010, and settlement occurred on June 17, 2010. The small-value TDF auctions are a matter of prudent planning and have no implications for the near-term conduct of monetary policy.

    Information on the amount of term deposits outstanding is presented on table 1, table 10, and table 11. The maturity distribution of term deposits is presented in table 2.

    For Release at

    May 13, 2010


    The Board's H.4.1 statistical release, "Factors Affecting Reserve Balances of Depository Institutions and Condition Statement of Federal Reserve Banks," has been modified to report the maturity distribution of temporary U.S. dollar liquidity swap facilities (central bank liquidity swaps). These facilities were re-established in response to the re-emergence of strains in U.S. dollar short-term funding markets in Europe and are designed to help improve liquidity conditions in U.S. dollar funding markets and to prevent the spread of strains to other markets and financial centers.

    The maturity distribution of these swaps is reported again in table 2. The release continues to show the outstanding dollar value of central bank liquidity swaps in tables 1, 10, and 11.

    Detailed information about draws on the swap lines by the participating central banks is presented on the Federal Reserve Bank of New York's website: http://www.newyorkfed.org/markets/liquidity_swap.html.

    H8: Publication of Percent Changes on the H.8 Release
    Effective with this release, break adjusted, seasonally adjusted percent changes at an annual rate will be published on the H.8 release each week. The percent changes in selected asset and liability items are shown on page 1 of the release; percent changes for other series shown on the release are available for customizable download through the Federal Reserve Board's Data Download Program (DDP). The percent changes will be updated weekly. Data for a new month, quarter, or year will be published simultaneously with complete weekly data for the new month, quarter, or year. Except for being renumbered, all other pages of the H.8 release are unchanged.

    The percent changes have been adjusted to remove the effects of nonbank structure activity of $5 billion or more, as well as the estimated effects of the initial consolidation of certain variable interest entities (FIN 46) and off-balance-sheet vehicles (FAS 166/167). The adjustments are generally made using the figures reported in the H.8 Notes on the Data. A ratio procedure is used to adjust past levels to make them comparable with current levels.

    H41: AIG loan restructuring adjustment and TALF fair value adjustment

    The Board's H.4.1 statistical release, "Factors Affecting Reserve Balances of Depository Institutions and Condition Statement of Federal Reserve Banks," has been modified to reflect a revision to the loan restructuring adjustment associated with the revolving credit extended to American International Group, Inc. (AIG). In addition, the release has been modified to incorporate fair value adjustments associated with the Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility (TALF).

    Consistent with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the AIG revolving credit extension has been reduced by a revision of $1,255 million to the loan restructuring adjustment. The restructuring adjustment is related to the loan modification that eliminated the floor on the Libor rate, announced on March 2, 2009, and that was first incorporated in reported figures beginning with the July 30, 2009, H.4.1 release. The restructuring adjustment recognizes the economic effect of the reduced interest rate on the revolving credit facility and will be amortized over the remaining term of the credit extension. The revised restructuring adjustment incorporates quarterly updates as of December 31, 2009, of estimates of factors such as interest rates and future cash flow streams that are used to value the original loan restructuring adjustment. The Federal Reserve expects that the credit extension, including interest and commitment fees under the modified terms, will be fully repaid.

    The weekly average balance of the credit extended to AIG shown in table 1 reflects holdings from March 25, 2010, through Wednesday, March 31, 2010.* The balance for the first six days of this reporting week reflects the loan restructuring adjustment prior to its revision. The balance for the final day of the reporting week reflects the revised loan restructuring adjustment.

    Several items on the release have been modified to include fair value adjustments associated with the TALF. A fair value adjustment to the TALF loans extended by FRBNY is recorded in "Other Federal Reserve assets" in table 1 and "Other assets" in table 10 and in table 11. This fair value adjustment of $557 million reflects the value of the future interest received by FRBNY that is paid to the TALF LLC to provide credit protection. The adjustment is substantially offset by a corresponding increase in the fair value of the liability to the U.S. Treasury related to its beneficial interest in the TALF LLC recorded in "Other liabilities and capital" in table 1 and "Other liabilities" in table 10 and in table 11. The fair value adjustments associated with the TALF will be updated quarterly.

    * This cover note was revised to reflect the correct dates of the reporting week. The original cover note listed the dates for the previous reporting week.

    H41: TALF LLC

    For release at
    4:30 p.m. EDT
    November 19, 2009

    The Board's H.4.1 statistical release, "Factors Affecting Reserve Balances of Depository Institutions and Condition Statement of Federal Reserve Banks," has been modified to include information related to TALF LLC, a limited liability company formed to purchase and manage any asset-backed securities that might be received by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (FRBNY) in connection with the Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility (TALF). This information will be presented in a new table 8, "Information on Principal Accounts of TALF LLC." The release has also been modified to include information related to the net portfolio holdings of TALF LLC. This information is presented in table 1, in table 8, in table 9, and in table 10.

    On November 25, 2008, the Federal Reserve announced the creation of the TALF under the authority of section 13(3) of the Federal Reserve Act. Under the TALF, the FRBNY extends loans to eligible borrowers to finance the purchase of eligible asset-backed securities (ABS) that serve as the collateral for the loans. The loans provided through the TALF are non-recourse, meaning that the obligation of the borrower can be discharged by surrendering the collateral to the FRBNY. The loans are extended for the market value of the security less an amount known as a haircut. As a result, the borrower bears the initial risk of a decline in the value of the security. TALF LLC has committed, for a fee, to purchase all ABS received by FRBNY in conjunction with a TALF loan at a price equal to the TALF loan plus accrued but unpaid interest. Purchases of these securities are funded first through the fees received by the LLC and any interest the LLC has earned on its investments. In the event that such funding proves insufficient, the U.S. Treasury's Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) will provide additional subordinated debt funding to the TALF LLC to finance up to $20 billion of asset purchases. Subsequently, the FRBNY will finance any additional purchases of securities by providing senior debt funding to TALF LLC. Thus, the TARP funds provide credit protection to FRBNY.


    The Federal Reserve has completed its evaluation and consistent with generally accepted accounting principles, the assets and liabilities of TALF LLC will be consolidated with the assets and liabilities of the FRBNY in the preparation of the statements of condition shown on the release. Although the U.S. Treasury provides credit protection to the FRBNY, the FRBNY is the more closely associated beneficiary of the LLC because it directs the significant financial activities of the TALF LLC.


    The consequences of this consolidation appear on the release in the following ways. Any extensions of credit from the FRBNY to TALF LLC are eliminated, as is the accrued interest on such loans. The net portfolio holdings of TALF LLC are included in "total factors supplying reserve funds" in table 1 and in "assets" in table 9 and in table 10. The liabilities of TALF LLC to entities other than the FRBNY are included in "other liabilities and capital" in table 1 and in "other liabilities and accrued dividends" in table 9 and in table 10.
    Information on the principal accounts of TALF LLC is presented separately in a new table 8. This table presents the net portfolio holdings of TALF LLC, which comprise the fair value of the ABS holdings of TALF LLC and other investments that result from the initial funding provided by the U.S. Treasury, fees paid by the FRBNY, and interest received on investments. In addition, the table presents the book value of the outstanding principal of the loan extended by the FRBNY, the book value of the accrued interest payable to the FRBNY, and the book value of the funding provided by the U.S. Treasury to TALF LLC, which includes the accrued interest payable to the U.S. Treasury.

    H8: Changes to Data and Items Reported on the Release for July 1, 2009

    Effective with this release, several changes, summarized below, have been made to the data and the line items shown on the H.8 release. These changes relate to the adoption, as of July 1, 2009, of a single reporting form for all weekly reporters (see the Federal Reserve Board's notice published in the Federal Register, 74 FR 10739). Historical data have been revised to reflect these changes. In addition, data from the H.8 release are now available for customizable download through the Federal Reserve Board's Data Download Program (DDP). These data will be updated weekly with the H.8 release.

    1. The line items on loans now include the loans that banks hold in trading accounts. Previously, loans that banks held in trading accounts were included in trading account securities.
    2. Derivatives with a positive fair value and other trading assets are now shown as trading assets not included in bank credit. Previously, derivatives with a positive fair value and other trading assets were included in securities in bank credit.
    3. The set of line items shown on the release has been changed.
      • The set of line items shown on the release is now identical for each bank group (all commercial banks; domestically chartered commercial banks; large domestically chartered commercial banks; small domestically chartered commercial banks; and foreign-related institutions in the U.S.). As a result, more line items are now shown on the release for small domestically chartered banks and foreign-related institutions. Data values that had not previously been reported by a bank group are denoted "--". Previously, the set of balance sheet items shown on the release differed substantially by bank group.
      • The line items on securities are now shown by issuer (Treasury and agency or other) and type of security (mortgage-backed securities (MBS) or non-MBS). Previously, securities were shown by account type (investment account versus trading account) for large domestically chartered commercial banks and foreign-related institutions, and detail on mortgage-backed securities was shown only for large domestically chartered commercial banks that held such securities in investment accounts.
      • Banks' allowance for loan and lease losses is now shown.
      • Some line items are no longer shown separately: security loans are now included in all other loans and leases; state and local government loans held in investment accounts by large banks are now included in other securities, non-MBS; transaction deposits are now included in deposits, other deposits; and nontransaction deposits are now included in deposits, large time deposits or in deposits, other deposits, as appropriate.
      • Some memoranda items that were previously shown for large domestically chartered commercial banks have been eliminated: pass-thru mortgage-backed securities; CMO, REMIC, and other mortgage-backed securities.
    4. The definitions of large and small domestically chartered commercial banks have been revised.
      • Large domestically chartered commercial banks are now defined as the top 25 domestically chartered commercial banks, ranked by domestic assets as of the previous commercial bank Call Report to which the H.8 release data have been benchmarked. Previously, large domestically chartered commercial banks were defined as banks that reported the FR 2416 form (that form was discontinued as of July 1, 2009).
        • If a large domestically chartered bank is acquired by a commercial bank or if a large bank leaves the commercial bank universe, then it is replaced with the bank next in line, typically the bank ranked number 26.
        • If a nonbank converts to a commercial bank charter, or if a small bank becomes large in size, it is not considered for the large bank panel (regardless of size) until the data are benchmarked to the subsequent Call Report.
      • Small domestically chartered commercial banks are now defined as all domestically chartered commercial banks not included in the top 25. Previously, small domestically chartered commercial banks were defined as all domestically chartered banks that did not report the FR 2416 form.
    5. To the extent possible, the information available via the historical H.8 "Notes on the Data" link has been revised to incorporate the changes to the line items shown on the release.

    G17: Preliminary Estimates of Industrial Capacity for 2009
    The data in this release include preliminary estimates of industrial capacity for 2009. Measured fourth quarter to fourth quarter, total industrial capacity is projected to decrease 0.3 percent this year after having expanded 1.5 percent in 2008. Manufacturing capacity is estimated to decline 0.6 percent in 2009 after having risen 1.7 percent last year. In 2009, mining capacity is estimated to expand 0.8 percent, about the same as in 2008, and utilities capacity is projected to rise 1.7 percent, which is 0.5 percentage point slower than it had last year. With the publication on March 27, 2009, of the annual revision to industrial production, capacity, and capacity utilization, these estimates will be updated to reflect more-comprehensive source data, including the U.S. Census Bureau's Survey of Plant Capacity for the fourth quarter of 2008, which covers manufacturing.

    H3: Note on Nonborrowed Reserves

    The H.3 statistical release indicates that nonborrowed reserves of depository institutions were negative for much of 2008 but more recently have turned positive.

    By definition, nonborrowed reserves are equal to total reserves minus borrowed reserves. Borrowed reserves are equal to the sum of credit extended through the Federal Reserve's regular discount window programs and credit extended through certain Federal Reserve liquidity facilities. Total borrowings from the Federal Reserve are presented in table 1a of the release. Over much of 2008, in order to maintain a level of total reserves consistent with the Federal Open Market Committee's objective for the federal funds rate, increases in borrowed reserves were offset through a nearly commensurate decrease in nonborrowed reserves, which was accomplished through a reduction in the Federal Reserve's holdings of securities and other assets. The negative level of nonborrowed reserves was an arithmetic result of the fact that borrowings from the Federal Reserve liquidity facilities were larger than total reserves.

    More recently, nonborrowed reserves have again turned positive. This development is purely an arithmetic result, in this case of the fact that a large volume of reserves has recently been provided through channels that, for purposes of the Federal Reserve's statistical releases, are not considered borrowings. These channels include foreign currency swap arrangements with foreign central banks and certain special purpose vehicles. Credit extended to these special purpose vehicles are not shown on the Federal Reserve's balance sheet. Rather, as noted on the H.4.1 statistical release, the assets of these vehicles are consolidated onto the Federal Reserve's balance sheet, and consequently credit extended to these special purpose entities is not treated as a borrowing for purposes of the H.3 statistical release.

    CP: Clarification of Criteria Considered for Commercial Paper Rates
    Financial paper that is insured by the FDIC's Temporary Liquidity Guarantee Program is not excluded from relevant indexes, nor is any financial, nonfinancial, or asset-backed commercial paper that may be directly or indirectly affected by one or more of the Federal Reserve's liquidity facilities. Thus the rates published after September 19, 2008, likely reflect the direct or indirect effects of the new temporary programs and, accordingly, likely are not comparable for some purposes to rates published prior to that period.

    Through November 4, the documentation on the "About" page of this release indicated that paper issued under "credit-enhanced programs" was excluded from the samples of issues used to calculate reported rates. This wording was intended to convey that asset-backed commercial paper was excluded from the calculation of financial rates. Indeed, consistent with that intent, the Federal Reserve has, since 2006, published a separate rate series for asset-backed commercial paper. To avoid confusion, the reference to "credit-enhanced programs" will be dropped.

    Capacity utilization rates for October 2007 through February 2008 have been updated with the G.17 Statistical Release published on September 15, 2008. In April 2008, a six-month reporting window was instituted for the industrial production indexes in the G.17 Statistical Release; however, the capacity utilization rates inadvertently continued to be calculated for only a four-month window. Table 7A shows the revised rates for the affected months. The download program and the historical data files on the Federal Reserve Board's website have been updated with revised data.

    2. For large domestically chartered banks, former item 4d, "Other securities, Investment account, Other," has been disaggregated into items 4b2 and 4b3, "Mortgage-backed" and "Other." Historical data beginning October 2, 1996, are available on the Federal Reserves web site.
    3. For foreign-related institutions, former item 7, "Real estate loans," has been renumbered as item 10 and renamed "Commercial real estate," which reflects the loan category more accurately.
    4. For small domestically chartered banks, former item 9, "Real estate loans, other," has been disaggregated into items 9 and 10, "Other residential" and "Commercial." Historical data beginning June 2, 2004, are available on the web site.
    5. For seasonally adjusted assets of large and small domestically chartered banks, former item 10, "Consumer loans," has been renumbered as item 11 and disaggregated into items 12 and 13, "Credit cards and other revolving plans" and "Other." Historical data beginning June 28, 2000, are available on the web site.
    6. For domestically chartered commercial banks and foreign-related institutions, former item 11, "Security loans," has been renumbered as item 14 and disaggregated into items 15 and 16, "Fed funds and RPs with brokers" and "Other."

    8. For small domestically chartered banks and foreign-related institutions, former item 13, "Interbank loans," has been renumbered as item 18 and disaggregated into items 19 and 20, "Fed funds and RPs with banks" and "Other."

    9. For foreign-related institutions, former item 19, "Nontransaction deposits," has been renumbered as item 26 and a component, "Large time" has been added (item 27). Historical data beginning January 3, 1973, are available on the web site.
    10. For large domestically chartered banks and foreign-related institutions, former memo items 29 and 30, "Reval. gains (losses) on off-bal. sheet items," have been renamed as "Derivatives with a positive (negative) fair value" and moved onto the balance sheet as items 4a1 and 33a. The remaining memo items have been moved to the end of the balance sheet pages. Historical data beginning October 2, 1996, are available on the web site.

    The adoption by some banks of FAS 159, The Fair Value Option for Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities, affected charge-off and delinquency rate data for 2008:1. Because the effects of the accounting change on the dollar volume of loans reported on banks' loan books were small, the effects of the accounting change on banks' charge-off and delinquency rates were presumably small for the industry as a whole. Information on the dollar impacts on banks' loan books can be found on page 14 in the "Notes on the Data" section beginning with the April 11, H.8, Assets and Liabilities of Commercial Bank in the United States, statistical release.

    H3: Recent Declines in Nonborrowed Reserves

    The H.3 statistical release indicates that nonborrowed reserves of depository institutions have declined substantially since mid-December to a level that is now negative. This development reflects the provision of a large volume of reserves through the Term Auction Facility (TAF) and has no adverse implications for the availability of reserves to the banking system.

    By definition, nonborrowed reserves are equal to total reserves minus borrowed reserves. Borrowed reserves are equal to credit extended through the Federal Reserve's regular discount window programs as well as credit extended through the TAF. To maintain a level of total reserves consistent with the Federal Open Market Committee's target federal funds rate, increases in borrowed reserves must generally be met by a commensurate decrease in nonborrowed reserves, which is accomplished through a reduction in the Federal Reserve's holdings of securities and other assets. The negative level of nonborrowed reserves is an arithmetic result of the fact that TAF borrowings are larger than total reserves.

    H8: Supplementary Information Regarding Balance Sheet Data for October 8, 2003
    A number of balance sheet items have changed as a result of declines in some banks' reported consolidations of variable interest entities (VIEs). Most of these declines reflect some banks' decisions to stop consolidating their VIEs in response to the announcement by the Financial Accounting Standards Board on October 9 that it had decided to defer the implementation of its Interpretation No. 46, Consolidation of Variable Interest Entities from the first reporting period beginning after June 15, 2003 to the first reporting period ending after December 15, 2003. For further information, please see the FASB website, www.fasb.org. In addition, a small part of the decline reflects a restructuring of some VIEs so that they no longer need to be consolidated on bank balance sheets.

    The balance sheet items affected are other securities, item 4, other loans and leases, item 12, and borrowings from others, item 24. Some of these changes extend back to July 2. Revised data for the H.8 statistical release are available on the Board's website, www.federalreserve.gov/releases.

    H8: Supplementary Information Regarding Balance Sheet Data for October 1, 2003
    Commercial bank balance sheet data for October 1, 2003, have been affected by consolidations of the assets and liabilities of several variable interest entities onto the balance sheets of the banks that sponsor them. Variable interest entities encompass many entities that have been commonly referred to as special purpose entities. These consolidations were implemented in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board Interpretation No. 46. For more information on these consolidations, please see Financial Accounting Standards Board Interpretation No. 46, Consolidation of Variable Interest Entities, available at www.fasb.org. Preliminary information suggests that these consolidations have increased H.8 balance sheet item 4, other securities, by about $9 billion, balance sheet item 12, other loans and leases, by about $6 billion, and balance sheet item 24, borrowings from others, by about $15 billion.

    H8: Supplementary Information Regarding Balance Sheet Data for July 2, 2003
    Commercial bank balance sheet data for July 2, 2003, have been affected by consolidations of the assets and liabilities of several variable interest entities onto the balance sheets of the banks that sponsor them. Variable interest entities encompass many entities that have been commonly referred to as special purpose entities. These consolidations were implemented in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board Interpretation No. 46. For more information on these consolidations, please see Financial Accounting Standards Board Interpretation No. 46, Consolidation of Variable Interest Entities, available at www.fasb.org/int46.shtml. Preliminary information suggests that these consolidations have increased H.8 balance sheet item 4, other securities, by about $3 billion, balance sheet item 6, commercial and industrial loans, by about $17 billion, balance sheet item 12, other loans and leases, by about $40 billion, and balance sheet item 24, borrowings from others, by about $60 billion.

    H8: Extension of Major Bank Credit Series to 1947

    Monthly estimates of total bank credit and its major components, seasonally adjusted and not seasonally adjusted, have been extended back from January 1973, the former start date for all the bank credit series, to January 1947. The components that have been extended are holdings of U.S. government securities, holdings of other securities, and the following loan categories: commercial and industrial, real estate, consumer, security, and "all other."

    Data in the H.8 are for all commercial banks in the United States, which consist of domestically chartered banks and foreign-related institutions (mainly U.S. branches and agencies of foreign banks). The data for 1973 through 1987 report totals for all institutions as well as subtotals for domestically chartered banks and for foreign-related institutions; beginning in 1988, the data are further disaggregated between large and small domestically chartered banks. The extended data (1947-72) show only all-institution totals.

    As with the current data, the extended monthly data are prorated averages of Wednesday values. The weekly Wednesday data underlying the monthly averages mix actual historical observations with estimates that are based on linear interpolations of semimonthly, monthly, and, in a few cases, lower-frequency observations.

    Several bank credit series received generally minor revisions for the 1973-87 period when the longer time series were introduced.

    H8: Discontinuation of District-specific balance sheet data

    Effective with this edition of the H.8 statistical release, the Federal Reserve is discontinuing the publication of the District-specific balance sheet data of large, domestically chartered banks that appeared on pages 11 through 14 of the release.

    The reason for the change is that, with the ability of banks to establish branches virtually nationwide as of June 1, 1997, a number of large bank holding companies have converted banks located across several Federal Reserve Districts into branches of a single bank. These consolidations have significantly shifted bank balance sheet items among Federal Reserve Districts, further weakening the connection between banking data reported separately by Federal Reserve District and actual banking activities in each District.

    However, the item coverage of the aggregate balance sheets of large banks in the H.8 has been expanded to retain the national totals of some of the items in the District tables that had not appeared in the national tables. As a result, the H.8 now reports the large bank data on four pages rather than two.

    H15: Changes to Treasury Long-Term Rate Series

    As of the release dated February 25, 2002, the H.15 no longer reports a 30-year constant maturity yield for Treasury securities and begins reporting a yield for Treasury securities with 25 years or more remaining to maturity.

    The changes reflect the Treasury's announcement on January 30, 2002, that, effective February 18, it would cease supplying an estimate of the 30-year constant maturity yield and that it would commence supplying a long-term yield based on a basket of long-dated securities.

    As indicated in footnote 12 of the release, the new long-term rate is based on an unweighted average of the bid yields for all Treasury fixed-coupon securities with remaining terms to maturity of at least 25 years. A factor to adjust the daily long-term average to estimate a 30-year rate is available at the Treasury web site reported in footnote 13 of the release.

    H15: Original and Revised Treasury Rates for the Week Ending September 14, 2001

    The H.15 site has links to the original September 17, 2001, release as well as to the revised releases for that date and for September 24.

    Data for most of the interest rates reported in the H.15 release of September 17, 2001, were missing for September 11-13 because of inactive markets or delays in data processing arising from the disasters of September 11.

    On September 25 the Treasury released the data that had been missing for September 13 regarding the constant maturity interest rates on Treasury securities and the secondary rates on bills. On October 1, 2001, the Federal Reserve issued a revised version of the H.15 release of September 17 to show the September 13 values of those series and the correspondingly updated values of the averages for the week ending September 14; also on October 1, 2001, the Federal Reserve issued a revised version of the September 24 release to show the new values of the averages for the week ending September 14.

    H15: Changes in the reporting of Treasury securities

    On July 31, 2001, the Department of the Treasury began the weekly issuance of 4-week bills. On August 27, 2001, the Treasury stopped reporting secondary market yields for 1-year Treasury bills, the final issuance of which was on February 27, 2001.

    Effective with the issue of September 4, 2001, the H.15 statistical release reflects these changes by reporting the secondary market rate for 4-week bills and by no longer reporting the secondary market rate for 1-year bills.

    In addition, the H.15 now reports a 1-month constant maturity rate, which the Treasury began calculating when it introduced the 4-week bill.

    H15: Note to Users of the H.15 Statistical Release; The addition of swap rates.
    Effective July 10, 2000, several changes are being made to the H.15 release:

    Rates for fixed-rate payers in interest rate swaps, as collected under the auspices of the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, Inc., are being added. These swap rates are for maturities of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 10, and 30 years.

    No longer appearing on the release are auction highs for 3-month, 6-month, and 1-year Treasury bills. These figures continue to be available from the Treasury's website: http://www.publicdebt.treas.gov/of/ofrespr.htm. Also being dropped is the Treasury composite (an unweighted average of yields on all outstanding bonds neither due nor callable in less than 10 years).

    Finally, the H.15 no longer contains rates for 3-month and 6-month bankers acceptances. The quotes continue to be available on Telerate, which was the source for these rates as reported on the H.15.
