Series Is Presented Here As Two Variables--(1)--Original Data, 1919-1946 (2)--Original Data, 1933-1955 Data Represent Output From Domestic And Foreign Material Including Secondary Copper Produced At Primary Refineries. North And South America Refers To The United States And Chile Through 1925 And Canada Beginning In 1926. Beginning In 1939 Only U.S. Production Is Covered. Data From October 1924-June 1925 Were Prorated From Quarterly Totals. Published Totals For 1945 And 1946 Have Been Revised To Eliminate 2,140 Tons 9,712 Tons Respectively; These Quantities Cannot Be Allocated To Monthly Figures.

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.
