Ratio Index Numbers The following provides the computational procedures with applications for some Index numbers, including the Ratio Index, and Composite Index numbers. Suppose we are interested in the labor utilization of two manufacturing plants A and B with the unit outputs and man/hours, as shown in the following table, together with the national standard over the last three months: Plant Type - A Plant Type - B Months Unit Output Man Hours Unit Output

Upon computing the labor utilization for both plants for each month, one can present the results by graphing the labor utilization over time for comparative studies....
