Federal Reserve’s Statistical Releases: a Publications History

This paper by Sian L. Seldin  is quite a surprising one.

One would imagine it would explain how various Fed’s stats publications have changed overtime. This it does but keeps explanation to a minimum. All it does is list the various publications overtime. In the end there are appendices which stitch the story together.

The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System has published extensive statistical information on the U.S. economy and banking industry since 1914. This information has been published in various formats, usually referred to as “statistical releases.” Titles and release numbers of the publications have changed frequently. Federal Reserve Board Statistical Releases: a Publications History describes these changes; it is a convenient tool that lightens the burden of tracing the titles and release numbers by providing history in a single location.

A paper with no references whatsoever..
