Minutes of the monetary policy meetings of the Reserve Bank Board are published two weeks after each meeting, and explain the monetary policy decision. The Reserve Bank Board normally meets eleven times each year, on the first Tuesday of each month, except January.
Statement on Monetary Policy
The Statement on Monetary Policy sets out the Bank's assessment of current economic conditions, both domestic and international, along with the outlook for Australian inflation and output growth. A number of boxes on topics of special interest are also published. The Statement is issued four times a year.
Financial Stability Review
The Financial Stability Review provides the Bank's assessment of the current condition of the financial system and potential risks to financial stability. It contains a number of boxes on topics of special interest, along with occasional articles. The Review is issued half-yearly.
The Bulletin contains articles that discuss economic and financial developments as well as the Bank's operations. Published monthly until December 2009 and thereafter quarterly.
The Reserve Bank prepares an annual report of its activities and financial statements. In 1998 a separate Payments System Board was established to foster stability of the financial system; it issues its own annual report. The Bank also provides an annual report on the equity and diversity of its workplace. Each of these reports are tabled in parliament.
