No Annual Values Are Presented Here. Annual Values Could Be Computed From The Monthly Data, But Such Computation Would Require Knowledge Of The Number Of Workdays In Each Month - A Quantity Which Varies From Month To Month, And For Any Given Month, From Year To Year. A Simple Average Of The Monthly Values Given Here Will Be A Biased Estimate Of The Annual Average. Source: Federal Housing Administration, Division Of Research And Statistics

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.
