The Importance of Ensuring the Comparability in time of Macroeconomic Indicators in the Study of Mass Socio:Economic Phenomena

The values of a specific indicator are sorted in space and time obtaining uni and bidimensional, territorial and chronological statistical series, considered as basis for comparative analyses. The indicators calculated on the basis of these series are grouped in two categories: indicators of comparisons over time; indicators of comparisons in space and indicators of time conditioned by space and territorial indicators conditioned by time. Given the complexity of the socio-economic phenomena, in order to ensure the accuracy of statistical data, their statistical analysis requires the comparability in time of the macroeconomic indicators regardless the statistical system used.
