From The Index Numers’ Method To The Method Of Coefficient Of Elasticity


  • Gheorghe SAVOIU

    (University of Pitesti)


Using the simple method of index numbers, and synthesizing the originality of his excellent statistical thinking by definition, this article identifies and presents an inimitable shortcut from Index – Numbers’ method to elasticity method. A final remark underlines the beauty and the rigour of this scientific demarche specific for the statistical thinking. This paper is a real homage addressed to Professor M. C. Demetrescu, and to his remarkable PhD thesis, printed approximately half a century ago, one of the best statistic and economic book about population demand.
