The object of this chapter is to analyse either published index numbers or data from which index numbers may be computed, and so to illustrate the two-situation theory of Chapter 2. At the same time the ground is prepared for the later developments of Chapters 4 and 5 on the theory and practice of runs of index numbers. The important problems in practice have to do with runs and the material assembled here can be called upon later to illustrate them.
