Abstract

Reported yields on short term debt instruments are calculated in a variety of ways, making comparison of yields on different instruments difficult. This article reviews the different methods, demonstrates that the biases that result from their use vary as the maturity of the instrument varies and increase as market rates increase, and suggests a method for standardization of yield comparisons.
