Formula for working out change in data series

Postby manthonisz » Mon Oct 24, 2016 4:04 pm

Hi,

Wondering if someone knew and could help me find an expression to calculate the three month change (actual change, not percentage change) in a monthly data series? I had a search online and in the programming user guide but couldn't work it out. Thanks so much!

Regards,

Michael Anthonisz
