Footnotes

  1. Equals required reserves (table 2, column 2) less vault cash used to satisfy required reserves (table 2, column 4).
  2. Equals the sum of each institution's top of the penalty-free band. For each institution, the top of the penalty-free band is equal to the institution's reserve balance requirement plus an amount that is the greater of 10 percent of the institution's reserve balance requirement or $50,000.
  3. Equals the sum of each institution's bottom of the penalty-free band. For each institution, the bottom of the penalty-free band is equal to the institution's reserve balance requirement less an amount that is the greater of 10 percent of the institution's reserve balance requirement or $50,000.
  4. Effective February 18, 2014, omits balances held by designated financial market utilities. These balances are reported in the H.4.1 statistical release.
  5. Equals the sum of balances maintained up to the top of each institution's penalty-free band.
  6. Equals the sum of balances maintained that exceed the top of each institution's penalty-free band.
  7. Prorated averages of biweekly averages.
  8. Averages of daily figures.
