These Entries Are Obtained By Inverting The Series On Bond Yields By Dividing The Yield, Expressed In Decimals, Into 4.00. See F.R. Macauley, "Some Theoretical Problems Suggested By The Movements Of Interest Rates, Bond Yields, And Stock Prices In The United States Since 1856." (NBER, 1938). Source: 1857-1925 Data Are Computed By NBER From F.R. Macaulay'S Data On Bond Yields As Published In The NBER News-Bulletin, No.41, January 5, 1931. Thereafter, Data Are From NBER Files.

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.
