Weights for the broad index can be found at http://www.federalreserve.gov/releases/H10/Weights; weights for the major currencies index and the other important trading partners (OITP) index are derived from the broad index weights. The most recent annual revision to the trade weights and dollar indexes took effect with the February 5, 2001, release of this report. * U.S. dollars per currency unit. 1) A weighted average of the foreign exchange value of the U.S. dollar against the currencies of a broad group of major U.S. trading partners. 2) A weighted average of the foreign exchange value of the U.S. dollar against a subset of the broad index currencies that circulate widely outside the country of issue. 3) A weighted average of the foreign exchange value of the U.S. dollar against a subset of the broad index currencies that do not circulate widely outside the country of issue. The euro is reported in place of the individual euro-area currencies. These currency rates can be derived from the dollar/euro rate by using the fixed conversion rates (in

currencies per euro) given below: 1 EURO = = = = = = = = = = = = 13.7603 40.3399 5.94573 6.55957 1.95583 .787564 1936.27 40.3399 2.20371 200.482 166.386 340.750 AUSTRIAN SCHILLINGS BELGIAN FRANCS FINNISH MARKKAS FRENCH FRANCS GERMAN MARKS IRISH POUNDS ITALIAN LIRE LUXEMBOURG FRANCS NETHERLANDS GUILDERS PORTUGUESE ESCUDOS SPANISH PESETAS GREEK DRACHMAS
