This paper combines multiple data sources to create 100-year daily data history for Dollar Factor. In the first section of this article, we introduced the Dollar Factor. It represents the value of the US Dollar (USD) relative to its most crucial trading partners' currencies. As a result, it reflects the US economy relative to the rest of the world. In the second section, we combined data sources for 1926-1953, 1953-1971, and 1971-2022. However, the data from the first period are at a monthly frequency only. Therefore, in the next section, we applied simple linear interpolation to transform them into daily data. Finally, we combined the data into one time series to create 100-year daily data history for Dollar Factor.
