This data set contains annual and monthly data for exchange rates important to U.S. agriculture. It includes both nominal and real exchange rates for 79 countries, plus the European Union (EU), as well as real trade-weighted exchange rate indexes for many commodities and aggregations. All series are updated quarterly. Data series start at the beginning of 1970 and run to the last available data point.
Errata: On October 13, the monthly nominal exchange rate forecasts for Venezuela and Benin were corrected. The 2016 forecast for Venezuela was corrected to reflect the forecast for the official dollar exchange rate. The forecast for Benin was corrected to be consistent with the forecast for Cameroon, which also uses the Central African franc (CFA). The corrections affect the 2016 forecasted real exchange rates for these countries and the values for commodity trade-weighted exchange rate index forecasts.
