This interactive documentation serves as a guide to the data compiled and published as part of the “Financial Accounts of the United States” (Z.1) data release. The Z.1 includes flow of funds, balance sheet, and integrated macroeconomic account data. This comprehensive documentation system is designed to help a user understand the links between series and underlying source data by providing the capability to search or browse the vast amount of information underlying the Z.1.

The two options below offer different ways to view the structure of these accounts. Option 1 allows a user to search series mnemonics, or names, and descriptions. Expand the “Tips” to see the syntax that can be used to create different searches and filter search results. Option 2 displays a list of all tables published in the Z.1 data release and some international data submissions tables, linking the user to information associated with each table.
