Consolidation of the Board of Governors H.3 and H.6 Statistical Releases

The Board of Governors discontinued the H.3 statistical release “Aggregate Reserves of Depository Institutions and the Monetary Base” on September 17, 2020.

As a result of the elimination of reserve requirements for all depository institutions (effective March 26, 2020), many of the release items on the Board’s H.3 statistical release are zero. Therefore, the Board consolidated the remaining relevant items from the H.3 statistical release into the H.6 release, “Money Stock Measures.” For more details on this consolidation, see the Board’s announcement posted August 20, 2020, and the Technical Q&As for H.6.

The changes described above have been implemented in FRED. Most of the series from H.3 were discontinued, with the exception of the following monthly series, which were consolidated into Table 1 of the H.6 statistical release:
