    No data published for new car loans at auto finance companies
    The statistical foundation for these series has deteriorated in the past few months. Therefore, publication of these series is temporarily being suspended. The statistical foundation is in the process of being improved, and publication will resume as soon as possible.


  • December 02, 2010
    New interactive graphics feature of Data Download Program (DDP)
    Users will now be able to create and view interactive graphics of data packages from the program before downloading the underlying data and charts. The charting feature allows users to view multiple data series on a single chart as well as to display individual data points. The charts can be saved as PDFs or in a standard image file format (PNG) for publication and redistribution.

    "Graphics play an important role in identifying data trends and relationships," said Federal Reserve Vice Chair Janet L. Yellen. "With the help of this intuitive new user interface, it's now possible to create customized charts directly from Federal Reserve statistical data."


  • December 07, 2009
    Revisions to student loan data in the G.19
    Starting with March 2009 numbers, data are revised to incorporate loans purchased by the Department of Education under the 2007-08 and 2008-09 Loan Purchase Programs. More information on these programs is available at http://federalstudentaid.ed.gov/ffelp/. In addition, with this release the "Federal government and Sallie Mae" sector is relabeled the "Federal government" sector to reflect that Sallie Mae completed its transition to a finance company in 2004. Sallie Mae's data before the completion of the privatization remains in the Federal government sector. This change affects the labeling solely and not the underlying data.
