ci_geom_gen {Compind}R Documentation

Generalized geometric mean quantity index numbers

Description

This function use the geometric mean to aggregate the single indicators. Two weighting criteria has been implemented: EQUAL: equal weighting and BOD: Benefit-of-the-Doubt weights following the Puyenbroeck and Rogge (2017) approach.

Usage

ci_geom_gen(x,indic_col,meth,up_w,low_w,bench)

Arguments

x

A data.frame containing simple indicators.

indic_col

A numeric list indicating the positions of the simple indicators.

meth

"EQUAL" = Equal weighting set, "BOD" = Benefit-of-the-Doubt weighting set.

up_w

if meth="BOD"; upper bound of the weighting set.

low_w

if meth="BOD"; lower bound of the weighting set.

bench

Row number of the benchmark unit used to normalize the data.frame x.

Value

An object of class "CI". This is a list containing the following elements:

If meth = "EQUAL":

If meth = "BOD":
