About the Release
The H.6 release, published weekly, provides measures of the monetary aggregates (M1 and M2) and their components.
M1 and M2 are progressively more inclusive measures of money: M1 is included in M2.
M1, the more narrowly defined measure, consists of the most liquid forms of money, namely currency and checkable deposits.
The non-M1 components of M2 are primarily household holdings of savings deposits, small time deposits, and retail money market mutual funds.
Monthly data are available back to January 1959; for most series, weekly
data are available back to January 1975.
