This Category Is Composed Of Two Subgroups,As Follows: 1. Office Buildings And Warehouses, Which Includes Office Buildings, Except Those Built By Public Utility Companies For Their Own Use; Loft Buildings; Banks And Building And Loan Association Buildings; Warehouses And Storage Buildings (Other Than Cold Storage Buildings, Grain Elevators, Storage Silos, And Warehouses Built By Industrial Or Public Utility Companies For Their Own Use). Because Of A Change In The F. W. Dodge Corporation'S Classification, Beginning With Data For 1956, Warehouses For Commercial Establishments Not Engaged In Selling Storage Space (E.G., Department Store Warehouses) Are Included, While Prior To That Date They Were Excluded From This Category And Included In "Miscellaneous Nonresidential Buildings." Estimates For These Categories Are Therefore Not Strictly Comparable Between The Two Periods. 2. Stores, Restaurants, And Garages, Which Includes All Buildings And Structures Intended For Use Primarily In The Wholesale, Retail, And Service Trades. For Example, Complete Shopping Centers, Department Stores, Drug Stores, Restaurants, Public Garages, And Auto Service Stations Are In This Category.

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.
