Series Is Presented Here As Two Varibles--(1)--Original Data, 1938-1955 (2)--Original Data, 1948-1969. Revised Estimates For Retail Trade Inventories Were Introduced In January 1946. This Variable Can Be Extended Through May 1957 (The End Of The"Old" Estimates For Wholesale Trade Inventories), But This Overlap Is Considered Sufficient. Source: Derived By Adding Series (Total Manufacturers' Inventories), (Retail Trade Inventories, All Stores), And (Wholesale Inventories, Total Trade); See These Series For Sources.

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.
