For Years Since 1915, These Data Are Mainly Bls-Commerce Estimates; Hence For Later Years This Series Is Superseded---Except For Comparison With Earlier Years---By NBER Series 02260. For Years Before 1952, Kuznets Calculated Total Gross Construction As The Sum Of (1) Cost Of Oil And Gas Wells Drilled, And (2) All Other Construction. The Estimation Procedure Followed Was Complex, And Is Described In The Source Work Cited Above, Q.V.; See Also Lipsey And Preston, Pp. 251, 252. Data For 1952-55 Are Based On Commerce Department Figures Published In The"Survey Of Current Business" For July, 1956. Source: Annia; Estimates Underlying Five-Year Moving Averages From: Kuznets, Simon, "Capital In The American Economy: Its Formation And Financing, " (Princeton University Press For NBER, 1961).

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.
