Data Were Revised Back To 1914 By The Federal Reserve Board (See Banking And Monetary Statistics, P. 407). Figures Were Also Revised Beginning 1914 By Frb To Exclude The Amount Of 287 Million Dollars In Gold Coin Reported To Be In Circulation In January 1934, When That Figure Was Discontinued In The Circulation Statement, But Believed To Have Been Lost Or Melted Down Over The Years (See Banking And Monetary Statistics, P. 407).

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.
