### 2nd PUC Statistics Index Numbers One and Two Marks Questions and Answers

Question 1.
What do you mean by an index number?/ Define index numbers.
An index number is a statistical measure designed to show an average change in a variable or group.of related variables with respect to Time, Geographical location or Income group etc.

Question 2.
Define/what are the conditions for an Index number to satisfy TRT and FRT.
Time Reversal Test requires that the product of P01 (price index number computed time backward) and P10 (price index number computed time forward) should be equal to one [1]; ie P01 × p10 = 1.

Factor Reversal Test requires that the product of P01 (price index number) and Q01 (quantity index number) should be equal to the net changes occurring in between the current year and the base year (V01 )
ie. P01 × Q01 = $$\frac{\sum p_{1} q_{1}}{\sum p_{0} q_{0}}$$;(Except the factor 100)

a

Question 3.
Define Unit Test
This test requires that the index number used should be independent of the units of measurement.

### 2nd PUC Statistics Index Numbers Five Marks Questions and Answers

Question 1.
Mention the steps involved in the construction of Price Index Number? Explain in brief. (10 Marks)

1. Purpose and the scope
2. Selection of base period
3. Selection of commodities or items
4. Obtaining price quotations
5. Choice of an average
6. Selection of weights
7. Selection of suitable formula

1. Purpose and scope:-
At the very outset the purpose for which the index numbers is being constructed should be clearly defined. Since most of the latter problems will depend upon purpose, because the selection of items, base year, formulae will be different for different purposes. The purpose may be such as cost of living index number for urban areas, rural areas, factory workers etc. should be clearly defined.
Also, it is necessary to state the scope of the index numbers such as, geographical region, time, Income etc.

2. Selection of the Base year: –
Index numbers are always constructed with reference to some period called base period. The period may be a year, a month, week or a day.
Following points are to be considered while selecting the base year.

• The base period selected should be Normal one, that is economically stable. It should be free from wars, floods, famine, booms, depressions, which affects the economic activities.
• Also the base year selected should not be too long or too short distance. Since economic activities are always dynamic.
• While selecting the base year, decision has to make whether fixed base or chain base year to be selected. In fixed base year, if the period of comparison is kept fixed for all current years, it is called fixed-base period. Where as in chain base year, comparison is made always with the previous year.

3. Selection of items: –
Items means sample of representative commodities/ items, required for day to day living, which are included in the construction of index number. According to the tastes, habits, customs and traditions etc., of working class people should be selected. It is also necessary to decide the grade or quality of items.

4. Obtaining price quotations: –
After selecting the commodities/ items, the next problem is to fix the prices for the items selected. Since prices vary from place to place, and even from shop to shop in the same market. Hence the suitable way is to obtain the prices ascertained by Marketing inspectors, Super Bazaars, Co-operative Societies or took out the average prices collected by various shops or places where concerned.

5. Choice of an average:-
Since index numbers are specialised averages so, in the construction of index numbers, suitable average should be used. The choice is made between Arithmetic mean and Geometric mean. Usually Arithmetic mean with weighted averages is popularly applied, but when accuracy is required Geometric mean is suitable.

6. Selection of Weights:-
Weight of the items means, the relative importance of an items used in the construction of index number. Since all items are not equally important in day-to-day usage. Proper weights should be attached to the various items depending on their relative importance, eg: Sugar-Rice, Atta-Salt etc. Mostly these weights are quantities in the base period or . those in the current period are considered. Sometimes a combination of quantities of different time periods may be used as weights.

7. Selection of formula:-
A large number of formulae have been devised for construction of Index numbers. Hence a reasonable formula/ method suitable to the object and the data available should be selected.

Question 2.
What are the steps used in the construction of Consumer Price Index Number? Explain in brief. .
Here “Cost of living index number is the index number of the cost met by a specified class of consumers in buying a basket of goods and services.
The following are the main steps/stages/principlps/points/Heads involved in the construction of cost of living index numbers: –

1. Object and scope.
2. Conducting family budget survey
3. Obtaining the price quotation.
4. Method of construction.

1. Object and Scope:-
Decide the class of consumers for which index number is required. Such as whether index number is meant for government employees, bank employees, merchants, farmers, etc. also the geographical location, as that of locality, city or town, or a community of people who are having the similar consumption pattern should be decided.

2. Conducting family budget survey:-
A sample survey regarding the average expenses of families on various items of consumption is conducted. In the survey, the information regarding commodities consumed by the families, their quality and the respective budget is collected. The items included are under the heads of (i) Food (ii) Clothing (iii) Fuel and lighting and (iv) Miscellaneous. Each of these can be divided into smaller groups, as food may be including Wheat, Rice, Dhal, etc., which are consumed by the people for whom index is meant.

3. Obtaining Price Quotations:
While constructing the cost of living index number, retail prices of commodities/ items are to be collected. The price lists are obtained from different agencies from different places. Then, they are averaged and these averages are used in the construction of index number. Here price lists of current period as well as base period should be collected.

4. Methods of construction:¬. There are two methods of construction of Consumer price Index Number

1. Aggregative Expenditure Method (AEM): In this method base year quantities are considered as weight, i.e. C.P.I = $$\frac{\sum p_{1} q_{0}}{\sum p_{0} q_{0}}$$ × 100
2. Family Budget Method (FBM): In this method weighted AM of price relatives are used i.e CPI = $$\frac{\sum p w}{\sum w}$$ ;Where P = $$\frac{p_{1}}{p_{0}}$$ x 100; W = weight (p0q0)

From the following data, construct cost of living index number for the year 1998.

Here expense = weights – w : Cost of living index by family budget method.

Question 24.
Compute cost of living Index Number:

Let P and P2 be the group index for the year 1990 and 1995 and w-be the weights. Using family budget method:
CPI (1990) $$\frac{13195}{120}$$ = 109.96
CPI (1995) $$\frac{14065}{120}$$ = 117.21
