Index


Definition:

A measure that determines the magnitude of the same phenomenon in two different periods. Depending on whether the indices are calculated for a single unit or for a set of unit entities, we divide it into individual and group indices, and among group indices we distinguish aggregate indices (eg Laspeyres Index and Paaschi Index).
