 WASHINGTON, Dec. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Assets of the nation's 654 retail money market mutual funds increased by $3.72 billion to $400.53 billion for the week ended Wednesday, Dec. 8, the Investment Company Institute (ICI) reported today. Assets of the 407 taxable money market funds in the retail category rose by $1.65 billion to $311.67 billion; the 247 tax-exempt funds' assets increased by $2.07 billion to $88.86 billion.
 Assets of the 274 institutional money market funds increased by $9.36 billion to $201.23 billion for the same period. Among institutional funds, the 220 taxable money market fund assets rose by $8.41 billion to $178.16 billion; assets of the 54 tax exempt funds rose by $947.9 million to $23.06 billion.
 Total money market mutual fund assets stood at $601.76 billion for the week ended Wednesday, Dec. 8.
 Assets of money market mutual funds for the week ended Wednesday (12/1) were revised to $588.68 billion. The revisions are due to reporting errors and an increase in the number of funds reporting.
 ICI reports the assets of money market funds to the Federal Reserve Board each week and makes this data available to the public on a weekly basis. The Institute also reports monthly on three broad categories of funds. They are (1) short-term funds which include tax-exempt money market funds, (2) taxable retail and institutional money market funds, and (3) all funds other than money market funds -- such as stock, income, corporate bond and municipal bond funds.
