Series Is Presented Here As Two Variables--(1)--Original Data, 1939-1955 (2)--Original Data, 1948-1969. The Figures Represent The Month To Month Changes In The Derived Aggregates Of The Three Series Given Above. There May Be Small Rounding Discrepancies From Month To Month Changes In Published Totals. In January 1946, The "Revised" Estimates For Retail Trade Inventories Are Used; The Two Other Components Are Those Of The First Segment Of Each Series Through 1955. This Variable Can Be Extended Through May 1957, But The Overlap Is Considered Sufficient Through 1955. Source: Series 05123A (Derived From Series 05104--Total Manufacturers' Inventories; Series 05108--Retail Trade Inventories, All Stores; Series 05109--Wholesale Inventories, Total Trade; By Adding The 3 Series And Obtaining Month To Month Change, 1939-1947)

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.
