Estimated Total Insured Persons Employed In Those Trades Which, According To A Preliminary Study By Sir William Beveredge, Appear To Be Among Those Most Dependant Upon Export Markets, Save For Certain Trades Which Are Also Highly Sensitive To Internal Fluctuations, Namely Steel Melting, And General, Constructional, Marine, And Electrical Engineering. With These Omissions, The List Is As Follows: Tin Plates; Cotton; Linen; Explosives; Iron And Steel Tubes; Hand Tools, Cuttery, Saws, Files; Jute; Woollen And Worsted; Musical Instruments; Hemp, Rope, Cord, Twine, Etc.; Leather, Tanning, Currying, And Dressing; Rubber; Chemicals; Pottery, Earthenware, Etc.; Scientific And Photographic Instruments And Apparatus Equipment; Shipping Services. Figures From September, 1937 Onwards Are Based On A New Method Of Counting Unemployed, Which Raises Them Slightly Relative To Previous Figures. Source: E.H.Phelps Brown And G.L.S.

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.
