Data For 1865-1888 Were Computed By Adding Figures For Ton-Miles Presented In Groupings Of Seven And Six Railroads And Dividing Into Freight Earnings For The Two Groups. Data For 1889-1890 Were Computed From Freight Earnings And Ton-Miles Of Thirteen Individual Railroads. Data Were Revised In 1887, But Are Presented As One Variable. The Figures For 1887 And 1888 More Comparable To Earlier Data Are .827 And .783. Source: Poor'S Manual Of Railroads, 1888, Pp. Xxvii-Xxix; 1889, P. Viii; 1890; 1891.

Use a formula to modify and combine data series into a single line. For example, invert an exchange rate a by using formula 1/a, or calculate the spread between 2 interest rates a and b by using formula a - b.

Use the assigned data series variables above (e.g. a, b, ...) together with operators {+, -, *, /, ^}, braces {(,)}, and constants {e.g. 2, 1.5} to create your own formula {e.g. 1/a, a-b, (a+b)/2, (a/(a+b+c))*100}. The default formula 'a' displays only the first data series added to this line. You may also add data series to this line before entering a formula.
