DESCRIPTION OF THE TREASURY CONSTANT MATURITY SERIES
Y ie ld s on T reasury securities at 'constant maturity’ are interpolated by the U .S . T reasury from the daily yield curve. T h is curve,
which relates the yield on a security to its time to maturity, is based on the closing market bid yield s on actively traded Treasury
securities in the over-the-counter market. T h e se market yields are calculated from com posites of quotations reported by five lead­
ing U .S. G overnm ent securities dealers to the Federal R eserve B ank of New York. The constant maturity yield value s are read
from the yield curve at fixed maturities, currently 1 , 2 , 3, 5, 7, 10 , 20, and 30 years. T h is method provides a yield for a 10 -y e a r
maturity, for exam ple, even if no outstanding security has exactly 10 y e ars rem aining to maturity. In estimating the 2 0 -y e a r con­
stant maturity, the Tre asury incorporates the prevailing market yield on an outstanding Tre asury bond with approxim ately 20 years
rem aining to maturity.
