The advanced search tool provides the user with two search options. The first option, searching the “Flow of Funds Series” (the option set by default), queries all series that appear on Z.1 or Integrated Macroeconomic Accounts tables and their underlying series. This search will return a list of series, including their mnemonics, descriptions, structure, and the tables on which they appear. The second option, searching the “Flow of Funds Inputs,” queries only input series, which, by definition, are tied to specific data sources. This search will return a list of series, including their codes, descriptions, source information, and the date that the source information was last modified. The “Tips” box provides the syntax that can be used to create different searches and filter search results.
