<Related Long-Term Time-Series Data>

  • (Reference) Money Stock (from April 1998 through April 2008)
  • (Reference) Money Stock (Based on excluding Foreign Banks in Japan, etc., through March 1999)

<Added Items>

Table : Added Items
Added Items Note
  • M3+CDs - Money Trusts (Average Outstanding)
  • M3+CDs - Money Trusts (Outstanding at End of Period)
Both are calculated by deducting Money Trusts from M3+CDs.

M3 (current series) and "M3+CDs - money trusts" (former series <from April 1998 through April 2008>) have the same range of money issuers and financial assets (except for nonresident yen deposits).  The difference between the two indices mainly derives from the differences in the range of money holders and the estimation method of some data.
