February 01, 2016Implementation of Planned Changes to the Effective Federal Funds Rate
On January 6, 2016, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York announced the implementation date for two changes to the calculation of the effective federal funds rate (EFFR). Effective March 1, the data source for the EFFR will move from aggregated data provided by federal funds brokers to transaction-level data reported by depository institutions. In addition, the calculation method will change from a volume-weighted average to a volume-weighted median.
The H.15 will include the new EFFR rate on March 2, with data for March 1, 2016. More information, including additional detail on the calculation methodology, will also be published March 2.

July 28, 2004Addition of 20-Year Treasury Constant Maturity Inflation-Indexed
June 02, 2004Discontinuance of Treasury Long-Term Average Nominal Rate
January 05, 2004Inclusion of Yields on Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities
February 25, 2002Changes 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.
October 26, 2001Original 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.
September 04, 2001Changes 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.
July 10, 2000Note to Users of the H.15 Statistical Release; The addition of swap rates.
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.
