H8: Changes to Items Reported on the H.8 Release as of January 3, 2018
Effective with this release, several changes have been made to the line items shown on the H.8 release. These changes relate to the Federal Reserve Board's notice published in the Federal Register, 82 FR 49207 on October 24, 2017. The following line item changes have been made on the release: 1. Previous line item 26, Fed funds and reverse RPs with nonbanks, and previous line item 32, Fed funds and reverse RPs with banks, have been combined as new line item 30, Total federal funds sold and reverse RPs. Note that line item 1, Bank credit, and line item 9, Loans and leases in bank credit, no longer include Fed funds and reverse RPs with nonbanks and the category Interbank loans (former line item 31) has been eliminated. 2. Previous line items 35 and 44, Trading assets and liabilities, respectively, are no longer being published. The amount of trading assets and liabilities are now reported as part of other assets and liabilities (line items32 and 39), respectively. 3. The two previous components of Borrowings--previous line item 42, Borrowings from banks in the U.S. and previous line item 43, Borrowings from others--are no longer being published separately; these line items have been combined into line item 37, Borrowings. 4. The three Memoranda line items covering loans to businesses with original amounts of $1,000,000 or less have been dropped: previous line item 52, Loans secured by nonfarm nonresidential properties; previous line item 53, Commercial and industrial loans to U.S. addressees; and their total, previous line item 51. Historical data for the discontinued items will remain available for download through the Federal Reserve Board's Data Download Program. Historical data for the new combined series will be available back to 2010.
