Series Is Presented Here As Three Variables--(1)--Original Data, 1870-1926 (2)--Original Data, 1922-1942 (3)--Original Data, 1941-1955. Source: Data Were Computed By NBER From Seasonally Adjusted Data Of Orders For Passenger Cars, Freight Cars, And Locomotives Using Fixed Weights. For 1945-1951 Weights Were 16.1 For Passanger Cars, 36.7 For Locomotives, And 1 For Freights. Weights Were Derived From Interstate Commerce Commission Data On Value And Quantity Of New Equipment Installed For 1942-1955.

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.
