The evolution of any phenomenon in time is the result of certain systematic influences as well as of others regardless their type. An indicator increases or decreases in the long run. These developments are analyzed according to the specialty literature using chronological series, also known as time series. The chronological series indicators, such as indices (fixed or mobile), the dynamics rhythm (fixed or mobile) measures the change of an indicator presently as compared to the basic period.
