# Re: st: Creating an index series with single base years

```What makes my required computation somehow complicated for me is to
convert a single VARX series divided into three segments like
1960-1980 (in 1960 units), 1981-2000 (in 1980 units) and 2001-2010 (in
2000 units). This multiple times changing base withing one VAR makes
me puzzled to proceed.
