Combining Different Frequencies on One Graph

Postby rjdekaser » Thu Jan 23, 2014 8:46 am

Sometimes I'm able to combine 2 different frequencies on a single graph; for example, quarterly GDP growth rates and monthly unemployment rates. But sometimes it presents the monthly data as its quarterly, converted value. Is there some way I can control this feature?

The option is only available if you're graphing a pagelink (pink icon). Then you can set whether you want the frequency to be from the original source frequency, or the frequency of the current page.

Good to know, and thanks for the fast reply. Can you expand on how I may conmtrol this setting? In the graph options, elsewhere?

It is an option on the first page of the Graph options dialog.

When I try plotting an linked annual series from a monthly page, I do see the Frequency drop down box on the first page of the Graph Options dialog, and I can change it to plot at its native (annual) frequency.

However, when I change the Graph type from Line & Symbol to Bar, the Frequency drop down box is replaced an Orientation drop down box. The series is then plotted as a bar graph but with monthly frequency bars.

Is there a way to combine a monthly series as a line graph with an annual series as a bar graph ?
