The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s historical Treasury rates chart displays Treasury bond rates of return in a line graph depicting rate percentage by time period. Users can select long- and short-term bonds, from one month to 30 years, from a drop-down menu, according to the Department of the Treasury.
Users can customize a date range, with data available from Jan. 1, 1990, forward, states the Department of the Treasury. Users can select one type of investment or check the box to compare bonds. When comparing bonds, an additional line displays the difference between the longer and shorter rates or the real and nominal rates of return.
