This Variable Is The Complement Of The NBER Unemployment Series. The Entire Work Force (100%) Minus The Percentage Unemployed Equals The Percentage Employed. In January, 1910 Textile Industry Data Were Extended To Include All Classes Of Labor, Rather Than Only Highly Skilled One As Heretofore. The Cloakmakers Strike In New York City Involved Nearly 10% Of All Workers Reporting. The Figures For July And August Are Given Excluding Them. Beginning In January 1912, Lake Seamen, Who Have A Very High Rate Of Unemployment During The Winter Months, Are Not Included. Beginning In June, 1915 The Date Was Changed From The Last Of The Month To The 15Th. Source: Computed By NBER From Unemployment Data In New York State Department Of Labor, Annual Report 1902, P.382; Special Bulletin No69, P.4 And Special Bulletin No85, P.50.

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.
