FRED’s Prepared

The FRED team is working to ensure that the data and tools in FRED, ALFRED, and GeoFRED remain available during the outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). We are actively monitoring our sites to ensure ongoing functionality and resiliency, and we routinely prepare for contingency situations. Most data series in FRED are aggregated from other sources. FRED is able to continue pulling in data from those sources as soon as the sources update the data. Finally, you can continue to contact us if you have questions about FRED or any of the data found in FRED.

FRED Now Updates Euro Area Central Bank Assets Weekly

FRED has added a new series, Central Bank Assets for Euro Area (11-19 Countries), at a weekly frequency. This series will replace the monthly series with the same title.

This new series allows for more timely updates and more detailed data, since these data are released every week by the European Central Bank as part of the consolidated financial statements of the Eurosystem. And this series won’t lose the history of the existing monthly series in FRED.

The graph above shows both the new weekly and discontinued monthly series together. To convert this new weekly series to a monthly series, use the “Edit Graph” panel to modify the frequency of the weekly series to “Monthly” and select the “End of Period” aggregation method.
