This collection contains data for aggregate reserves and the monetary base that incorporate the latest adjustments for discontinuities associated with the Monetary Control Act and other regulatory changes to reserve requirements. Weekly data present in these tables cover the period from the beginning of 1959 through 1986. Historical data are shown as follows: Table 1 (monthly) and Table 3 (weekly) present data on reserves measures and the monetary base adjusted to remove discontinuities caused by regulatory changes in reserve requirements. Table 2 (monthly) and Table 4 (weekly) contain data on reserves measures and the monetary base not adjusted for discontinuities. Series adjusted for discontinuities are shown on both a seasonally adjusted and not seasonally adjusted basis. Table 5 (monthly) and Table 6 (weekly) show memorandum items, not adjusted for discontinuities in the reserve requirement structure and not seasonally adjusted. These items include reserve balances at Federal Reserve Banks, vault cash of depository institutions, and borrowings of depository institutions from the Federal Reserve.
