gpindex: Generalized Price and Quantity Indexes

Tools to build and work with bilateral generalized-mean price indexes (and by extension quantity indexes), and indexes composed of generalized-mean indexes (e.g., superlative quadratic-mean indexes, GEKS). Covers the core mathematical machinery for making bilateral price indexes, computing price relatives, detecting outliers, and decomposing indexes, with wrappers for all common (and many uncommon) index-number formulas. Implements and extends many of the methods in Balk (2008, ISBN:978-1-107-40496-0), von der Lippe (2001, ISBN:3-8246-0638-0), and the CPI manual (2020, ISBN:978-1-51354-298-0).
