Beginning In 1934, Cwa, Pwa, And Other Governmental Applications And Positions Are Included, Except In Cook County. The Demobilization Of The Cwa Caused The Great Rise In Applicants In March-April, 1934. The Increase In October, 1934 Is The Result Of A Concentrated Drive By The Employment Service And Relief Commission To Obtain Registrations. Source: Illinois Department Of Labor, Data Is From The Labor Bulletin, January, 1933 And February, 1935 (Called The Employment Bulletin Before July, 1923) Except Data For 1933 Which Were Furnished Directly From The Illinois State Employment Service Because The Labor Bulletin Ceased Publication From February, 1933-December, 1934.

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.
