The Data Represent Estimates Of The Number Of New Nonfarm Housekeeping Units Erected Each Year. They Are Presented As A Suggested Revision Of The Official Estimates For The Period 1890-1939, And An Extension Of This Series Back To 1840. The Estimates Are Intended Primarily For Use In The Study Of Long-Swing Movements Of Residential Construction, And, According To The Author, May Not Do Justice To Short Cyclical Movements. For Further Information See The Source Work Cited Above And Lipsey And Preston, Pp. 270-71.

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.
