Revisions to the H.6 Statistical Release

The last weekly H.6 statistical release will be published on February 11, 2021 at 4:30 p.m.. The first monthly H.6 statistical release, inclusive of the revisions announced on December 17, 2020, will be published on February 23, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. For more information on these revisions, see the announcement and Technical Q&As posted on December 17, 2020.

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.
