Series Is Presented Here As 2 Variables: (1) Annual Data, 1889-1919; (2) Annual Data, 1919-37. The Data Represent Value Of Work On Vessels Of Five Gross Tons And Over. For The Period 1889-1919, Estimates Of Value Of Output Were Used As Estimates Of Value Destined For Domestic Consumption. (No Adjustment Was Made For Exports And Imports.) The Primary Source For The 1889-1919 Estimates Was The "Census Of Statistical Reports From Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, And New Jersey Were Used To Estimate The Intercensal Years From 1889 To 1919. For The Period 1919-33 The Data Are Based On Kuznets' Estimates. ("Commodity Flow And Capital Formation", I, New York, NBER, 1938) Adjusted To Improve Comparability With Earlier Years. (Shaw'S Figures Include All Work Done; Kuznets' Total Included Work Done On Completed Vessels Only.) After 1933 The Estimates Are Rough Extrapolations. Values In 1913 Prices Were Derived By Applying Price Indexes To The Current Price Series. For 1915-1937 The Deflator Was An Interstate Commerce Commission Index For Floating Equipment, Published In A Mimeographed Release By The Icc, Engineering Section, Bureau Of Valuation, July 1, 1940. For 1889-1914 Two Indexes Of Cost To Railroads Of Floating Equipment Were Averaged. These Indexes Were Reported In "Cost Of Floating Equipment" (President'S Conference Committee, Eastern Group Pamphlet 290). The Average Was Linked To The Index For Later Years.

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.
