Series Is Presented Here As Three Variables--(1)--Original Data, 1870-1926 (2)--Original Data, 1925-1950 (3)--Original Data, 1941-1961. Orders For Which No Month Is Indicated In The Source Have Here Been Distributed Over The Whole Year By NBER. For Security Reasons Orders From The Transportation Corps Were Not Given In 1952 And 1953. In Order To Maintain Continuity During The Korean War Years Two Sets Of Figures For 1951 Are Presented. The Data Presented Within The Chronology Of The Variable Excludes Tansportation Corps Orders. The Data Including These Orders (41 In April, 20 In July, 129 Undated) Are As Follows: Annual Total--3935; January--209; February--156; March--710; April--186; May--624; June--212; July--146; August--238; September--657; October--214; November--407; December--176. In Normal Times Transportation Corps Orders Do Not Make A Great Difference. Beginning In 1960, Data Exclude Industrial Orders.

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.
