Series Is Presented Here As Two Variables--(1)--Original Data, 1921-1935 (2)--Original Data, 1935-1939 Data Were Derived By Adding Freight Steam Loocomotive Miles To Departmental Miles And Multiplying The Result By Pounds Of Coal Consumed Per Engine-Mile Of Freight (Including Departmental And Shunting). Source: Computed By NBER From Ministry Of Transport Data In "Railway Statistics".

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.
