Discontinuation of the following report:
1. Report title: Daily Advance Report of Deposits
Agency form number: FR 2000
OMB Control number: 7100-0087
Effective Date: November 5, 2001-
Reporters: Large commercial banks and thrifts
Annual reporting hours: 24,960
Estimated average hours per response: 0.60
Number of respondents: 160
Small businesses are not affected.
Abstract: This report collects selected deposit and vault cash data for the most recent reporting week from a sample of large commercial banks and thrifts before such data become available for the universe of all weekly reporters of the Report of Transaction Accounts, Other Deposits and Vault Cash (FR 2900; OMB No. 7100-0087). Although these advance data have been useful for estimating the monetary aggregates, the Federal Reserve feels that the costs to the Federal Reserve System and to depository institutions of collecting these data outweigh the benefits. In addition, under contemporaneous reserve requirements, these data were essential in constructing estimates of aggregate required reserves and vault cash for the reserve maintenance period. Since the Federal Reserve's change back to lagged reserve requirements in August 1998, these data are no longer essential for that purpose. Respondents will submit their final FR 2000 for the reporting week ending November 5, 2001. The Federal Reserve will continue to collect the other reports included in this information collection.Start Signature
