Summary Measures of the Foreign Exchange Value of the Dollar RSS DDP

Effective on February 4, 2019, the Federal Reserve Board staff has made major changes to the methodology used to construct the trade-weighted dollar indexes in the H.10, G.5, and G.5A releases. These changes affect the calculation of index weights and country composition. The new dollar indexes go back to (and are indexed to) January 2006. For more information, see "Revisions to the Federal Reserve Dollar Indexes" and "Technical Q&As".

Note: The currency weights used to compute the dollar indexes are updated and revised annually, but in unusual circumstances the weights may be revised at other times. Adjustments to the weights will likely result in changes to past values of the nominal and real indexes. Currency weights were last revised on February 4, 2019.

Bilateral dollar exchange rates are available from the Board's H.10 (weekly) and G.5 (monthly) statistical releases.
