FRED has moved to https://fred.stlouisfed.org. Don’t worry, though: All your old links will find FRED’s new place. As you enter, the first thing you’ll notice is FRED’s bold and beautiful graph.
By popular demand, the information about the graph, such as the last observation and units, now updates with changes to the graph.
Speaking of editing the graph, all of the controls for modifying or sharing the graph are found by clicking the “Edit Graph” button. Clicking the button causes a panel to slide out from the left. Changes to the graph can be made while viewing the graph. You can even mouse-over the graph to see the latest values or change the date range without closing the panel.
Another new feature is the ability to share a graph with an automatically updating time range. Click the share icon on the slide-out panel, select the type of link you want, and select how you want the graph to update.
Now if you’ll just follow me to the bottom of the page, you’ll notice our related content. As we make our way to the related content, we’ll pass our new Notes section, which is a handy place to find a link to the source of the data. We’ve added thousands of items of related content to make it easier for you to find the right data, economic education activity, or scholarly document.
Also under Related Content, we have links to categories, more data from the source, and release tables.
We’ve had release tables for a while now, but maybe you’re unfamiliar with them. Basically, they give you access to the data in a release-type format similar to what you would find at the source.
Well, that concludes our tour of FRED’s stylish new digs. We hope you love the new place as much as we loved creating it. Drop us a line to let us know what you think.
