With a view to the characterization of the mass phenomena, statics elaborates specific methods and techniques. Mass phenomena and processes have as primary ownership the individual forms of expression variability in time, in space and from an organizational point of view. The approach of these individual forms of manifestation finds necessary to develop a large number of statistical indicators. The statistical indicators carry information, have a real, objective content, and can be used either as a characterization of certain processes and/or phenomena from the quantitative and structural point of view, or as a system of indicators to study the same mass phenomena and processes in their mutual interdependence. Therefore, it is imperative to ensure the comparability of the macroeconomic indicators in time and space.
