Series Is Presented Here As Two Seasonally Adjusted Variables--(1)--1919-April 1940 (2)--1939-April 1944. The Two Variables Are Not Comparable. The First Was Seasonally Adjusted By The Federal Reserve Bank Of N.Y. And Then Adjusted For Trend And Price Changes. The Second Variable Consists Of Federal Reserve Board Seasonally Adjusted Indexes Corrected For Trend And Price Changes. The Trend Correction Of The Two Variables Is Different; The Deflator Is The Same For 1939, Different For The First Four Months Of 1940. The Second Variable Was Never Computed Back Of 1939.

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.
