Fed Funds Targets & RRP

From 1979 to 1982 the Fed targeted M2 money supply growth instead of interest rates. Prior to 1982 the Fed did not publicize interest rate targets, but the Effective Federal Funds rate canbe used to infer the effect of open market operations during those years.

Inflation (CPI)

These datasets represent the Consumer Price Index published by the Bureau of Labor and Statistics (BLS), a commonly used economic indicator of inflation. Aggregate CPI values are available as percentage changes from month-to-month or year-to-year. The monthly figures are seasonally adjusted by the BLS to smooth out the effect of predictable, calendar driven shifts in the price of goods and consumer behavior. Annual figures are not seasonally adjusted. More information about BLS seasonal adjustments is here.

Because the BLS may revise seasonally adjusted figures within the last 5 years, we provide options which allow you to see the monthly seasonally adjusted figures as the latest revision, or as they were originally reported.
