Series Is Presented Here As Three Variables--(1)--Original Data, 1913-1942 (2)--Original Data, 1940-1947 (3)--Original Data, 1940-1964. Data Represent Actual Production Rather Than Factory Sales, As Do All Pre-War Data. Since March 1942 Production Of Trucks Was Limited To Military Orders Except For Specific Exemptions Granted Occasionally To Fill Essential Needs (See Facts For Industry, February 16, 1944). The Data For 1940 And 1941 Are Not Directly Comparable To Later Data, But The Correspondance Is Close; This Refers Only To The Breakdown Of Trucks Into Light, Medium, And Heavy, For Which Weight Specifications Changed In 1942. The Total Was Not Affected. Source: Wpb, Facts For Industry.

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.
