US Treasury Foreign Holders: History

New official data series reflect new benchmark survey taken since June 2011, as described in the 02/29/2012 press release :
"It should be noted that in many cases it is not possible to accurately determine the country of residence of the beneficial owner of U.S. securities. Securities are often held in custody in countries other than the beneficial owner's country of residence. Respondents on this survey, in turn, may only know where the securities are held in custody. Thus, excessive foreign holdings may be attributed to countries that are major custodial centers, such as the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Belgium [EuroClear], and Luxembourg [ClearStream]."
