FRED Updates or Corrections

As with other large databases, we expect that FRED 2.0 will evolve over time. Notify us if you find any issues or mistakes within the database; we will plan to update FRED occasionally to correct these mistakes. In the meantime, we will keep a running list of any mistakes that are found in a table below. Updates that we implemented between FRED 1.0 and FRED 2.0 can be found here
