Revision of the Monetary Base

by Albert E. Burger

Data on the seasonally adjusted monetary base, as computed by the Bank, have been revised to reflect minor changes in the computation of the reserve adjustment magnitude and a change in the method of seasonally adjusting the monetary base. To compute the monetary base, the reserve adjustment magnitude is added to the source base (the uses of which are bank reserves and currency held by the public).
