New FRED Category Structure

We will soon be reorganizing the categories in our FRED database. During this process, users will still be able to access and search for all series.

After these modifications, FRED will have 7 main categories:

National Accounts
Population, Employment, and Labor Markets
Production and Business Activity
Money, Banking, and Finance
International Data
U.S. Regional Data

Several existing categories will be eliminated, and series listed under those categories will be moved to more descriptive categories. All email notifications for the eliminated categories will be updated. For more clarification, see the mockup of the changes. We intend to complete this transformation by the end of this year.
