Indices

Indices are calculated for each cell by dividing the row percentage in the cell by the row percentage for the same column in the base row. Indices show how closely row percentages in a row reflect the row percentages in the base row. The nearer a row's indices are to 100%, the more closely that row mirrors the base row. The following table shows row percentages and indices.
