On the Precision and Unequivocality of Categories (Concepts) of Statistics and Economics


  • Igor Timofiejuk


The paper concerns the commonly used categories (concepts) in economics and statistics. Unfortunately they are not always used properly, and commonly outright improperly. The effect is misunderstandings, wrong interpretations and also in the general reception mistaken understanding and lack of contact between the isenderl and receiver of the information. Other questions raised are economics and politics, political economy and economics, the way of counting dynamics, e.g. r (unweighted geometrical mean) and r' and r - original calculus methods of the author of this article. There are also other problems with which the science of economics and statistics is occupied.
