''A note on the decomposition technique of economic indices''
( 2012, Vol. 32 No.4 )
This note introduces a generalized version of multi-component decomposition method, which disintegrates a growth rate of an index into the roles of individual components. The method can be applied to two classes of indices: the additive-product form and the product-additive form. The application to the Japanese mortality rate of cardiac disease is provided.
Keywords: decomposition method, mortality rate
