  3. Data-Series Breaks and Other Changes:
    1. 2013. Effective with the release on February 18, 2014, the TIC report underlying the monthly bank-reported statistics on this webpage was redefined to include all financial firms. The TIC report underlying the quarterly nonbank statistics was redefined to include only nonfinancial firms, effective with the March 18, 2014 release. As a result, beginning with the data as of December 2013, a number of data reporters that are nonbank financial firms were shifted from the nonbank statistics, now called the nonfinancial statistics, to the monthly banking statistics, now called the monthly financial-firm reported statistics.
    2. 2008-2009: Effective with the data release on September 16, 2009, a number of institutions were reclassified in the TIC system as bank holding companies. These data reporters are now included in the monthly bank-reported statistics above and are no longer reporting only quarterly as nonbanks. This change in reporter classification affects data going back to October 2008.
    3. Changes beginning with data as of February 2003.
