Treasury Interest Rate Statistics
This curve, which relates the yield on a security to its time to maturity is based on the closing market bid yields on actively traded Treasury securities in the over-the-counter market. These market yields are calculated from composites of quotations obtained by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. For information on how the Treasury’s yield curve is derived, visit our Treasury Yield Curve Methodology page.
