5- Empirical Dimensions 33 They are not very highly correlated (a significant fact for the construction of M3) and, what is particularly noticeable, they often go in different directions during periods of general economic disturbance (1970, 1973-5, 1977-85). Similar results hold for the three items selected from the six that make up Ml in the official aggregates. 37 Because the user costs (as estimated) are neither equal to each other nor constant, an interesting question is opened up about the relative performance of the monetary aggregates over this period.

These properties are defined in terms of the statistical indices' effectiveness in tracking a particular functional form for the unknown aggregator function. Recall in thinking about this that the utility function is itself the appropriate aggregator function. What Diewert shows is that using a number of well-known statistical indices is equivalent to using a particular functional form to describe the unknown economic aggregator function. Such statistical indices are termed exact in this literature.

That is, cis not separable from scand L in U unless there exists a function g(c) such that u = U(c, L,x) — U[g(c),L, f(x)\. For an extensive discussion of separability, see Charles Blackorby, Daniel Primont, and Robert Russell (1978). 3. 7), we can derive the inverse and/or the direct demand-function system. Using these derived solution functions and specific monetary data, we then could estimate the parameters and replace the unknown parameters of f(x) by their estimates. The resulting estimated function is called an economic (or functional) monetary index, and its calculated value at any point is an economic monetary-quantity index number.
