Given the following table, find Walsh’s Price Index Number by completing the activity.

Commodity p0 q0 p1 q1 q0q1 `sqrt("q"_0"q"_1)` p0`sqrt("q"_0"q"_1)` p1`sqrt("q"_0"q"_1)`
I 20 9 30 4 36 `square` `square` 180
II 10 5 50 5 `square` 5 50 `square`
III 40 8 10 2 16 `square` 160 `square`
IV 30 4 20 1 `square` 2 `square` 40
Total     390 `square`

Walsh’s price Index Number is

P01(W) = `square/(sum"p"_0sqrt("q"_0"q"_1)) xx 100`

= `510/square xx 100`

= `square`

Solution

Commodity p0 q0 p1 q1 q0q1 `sqrt("q"_0"q"_1)` p0`sqrt("q"_0"q"_1)` p1`sqrt("q"_0"q"_1)`
I 20 9 30 4 36 6 120 180
II 10 5 50 5 25 5 50 250
III 40 8 10 2 16 4 160 40
IV 30 4 20 1 4 2 60 40
Total     390 510

Walsh’s price Index Number is

P01(W) = `(sum"p"_1sqrt("q"_0"q"_1))/(sum"p"_0sqrt("q"_0"q"_1)) xx 100`

= `510/390 xx 100`

= 130.77

Solution:

Commodity Base Year Current Year p1q0 p0q0 p1q1 p0q1
  p0 q0 p1 q1
I 8 30 12 25 360 240 300 200
II 10 42 20 16 840 420 320 160
Total         `bb(sump_1q_0=1200)` `bb(sump_0q_0=660)` `bb(sump_1q_1=620)` `bb(sump_0q_1=360)`

Laspeyre's Price Index Number:

P01(L) = `(sum"p"_1"q"_0)/(sum"p"_0"q"_0) xx 100 = square/660xx100`

∴ P01(L) = `square`

Paasche 's Price Index Number:

P01(P) = `(sum"p"_1"q"_1)/(sum"p"_0"q"_1) xx 100=(620)/(square) xx 100`

∴ P01(P) = `square`
