H8: H.8 DDP data corrected
This note provides more information on the changes made to the line items shown on the H.8 release and available through the Federal Reserve's Data Download Program (DDP) that were implemented on January 12, 2018 (for the original description of these changes, see https://www.federalreserve.gov/feeds/h8.html).Effective January 19, 2018, three corrections have been made to the presentation of data available in the DDP:1. Historical Data for the discontinued items had remained alongside current items in the DDP as of January 12, 2018. For now, the discontinued items have been removed from the DDP because discontinued items are no longer comingled with current items in the DDP. Data for the discontinued items will be made separately available in the DDP in the future.2. Data for the new combined items--Other assets including trading assets (line 32), Borrowings (line 37), and Other liabilities including trading liabilities (line 37)--had been incorrectly omitted for the week ending January 6, 2010. These gaps in the data caused the levels of total assets and total liabilities to also be incorrect that week. In addition, these gaps caused distortions in the associated monthly average data for January 2010. This issue has been corrected.3. The historical series for the new item, Total Federal funds and reverse RPs (line 30), was not included in the DDP. This issue has been corrected.
