Some Aspects regarding the Basic Index Number Theory
The index number problem can be framed as the problem of decomposing the value of a well-defined set of transactions in a period of time into an aggregate price term times an aggregate quantity term. It turns out that this approach to the index number problem does not lead to any useful solutions.
