Overview

Math_StatIndex

Package to calculate statistical index numbers.

An index number is "(a) statistic which assigns a single number to several individual statistics in order to quantify trends." (From MathWorld's "Index Number").

This package allows the calculation of some of the better known index numbers: Bowley index, Fisher index, Geometric mean index, Harmonic mean index, Laspeyres' index, Marshall-Edgeworth index, Mitchell index, Paasche's index, and Walsh index.

This is old code I wrote circa 2005.
