Series Is Presented Here As Two Variables--(1)--Original Data, 1920-1942 (2)--Original Data, 1949-1956. This Series Can Be Extended Through July 1948 When The Nicb Discontinued Its Compilation Of Payroll Statistics. The Bureau Of Labor Statistics Segment Which Follows Is Not Strictly Comparable Because It Includes Other Industries Related To Furniture Manufacture, Such As The Manufacturing Of Office And Store Fixtures, Window And Door Screens And Shades, Metal Furniture, And Also A Few Plants Engaged In Cabinet Work (See Nicb Research Report No. 69, 1924, P. 102). Source: National Industrial Conference Board, For June, 1920-1933 Data: Wages, Hours, And Employment In The United States, 1914-1936, Nicb Studies No. 222, 1936; For 1934-1938 Data: Nicb Economic Record, March 28, 1940; For 1939-1942: Nicb Conference Record, April 1943 And Subsequent Issues.

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.
