Move of Federal Reserve Bulletin to a quarterly schedule.

The Federal Reserve Board on October 3, 2003, announced the move to a quarterly publication schedule for the Federal Reserve Bulletin and the creation of a new monthly statistical supplement.

Beginning in the first quarter of 2004, the Bulletin will be enhanced and published four times a year. A quarterly report on the condition of the banking system and an annual report on changes in consumer regulations are among the new materials to be presented in the Bulletin. The Bulletin will continue to include topical research articles and summaries of Board survey findings, the Board's semiannual Monetary Policy Reports, a Legal Developments section, and other features such as lists of staff members, councils, committees, lists of Federal Reserve publications, and maps of the Federal Reserve Districts.

The Legal Developments section of the quarterly Bulletin will contain Board orders issued under the Bank Holding Company Act, the Bank Merger Act, the Federal Reserve Act, and the International Banking Act. Final rules and pending cases involving the Board are available on the Board's web site under "Legal Developments" at

The revised publication schedule responds to the results of customer surveys, the increased use of the Internet to access information on a more timely basis, and the Board's desire to provide a broader range of articles on topics of interest to Bulletin readers. A quarterly schedule will also make the planning and production of the Bulletin more efficient.

The tables that now appear in the Financial and Business Statistics section of the Bulletin will be published monthly as a separate publication titled Statistical Supplement to the Federal Reserve Bulletin. All tables that now appear in the Federal Reserve Bulletin, including special tables, will appear in the Statistical Supplement. All statistical series will be published with the same frequency that they have currently in the Bulletin. The first issue of the Statistical Supplement will be published in January 2004. The Publications Committee will monitor the usefulness of this publication in meeting the needs of the public over time, especially in light of the widespread dissemination of data through the Internet.

A Bulletin editorial board has been established under the direction of Lucretia Boyer, the Federal Reserve Board's chief of publications, to oversee the quality of content of these two publications and to ensure a diverse range of Bulletin articles.

Separate subscriptions for the two publications will be available starting with the January 2004 issue of the Statistical Supplement. For additional subscription information, contact Publications Fulfillment at 202-452-3244 or 202-452-3245 or send an e-mail to
