Dallas Fed Releases Exchange Rate Indexes for All 50 States

DALLAS—The Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas today released a new set of indexes measuring real trade-weighted exchange rates for each of the 50 U.S. states.

The indexes calculate the inflation-adjusted value of the U.S. dollar against the currencies of countries with which each state trades.

The indexes are available at the following link: www.dallasfed.org/research/data/rtwvd/index.cfm

The state-level indexes, which the Dallas Fed will publish monthly, should provide a more precise measure of the exchange rate movements most important to state economies.

For more information, see the recent Southwest Economy article, “New Tool Gauges Impact of Exchange Rates on States”: http://dallasfed.org/research/swe/2010/swe1004b.cfm
