gpindex: Generalized Price and Quantity Indexes

A small package for calculating lots of different price indexes, and by extension quantity indexes. Provides tools to build and work with any type of bilateral generalized-mean index (of which most price indexes are), along with a few important indexes that don't belong to the generalized-mean family (e.g., superlative quadratic-mean indexes, GEKS). 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) for bilateral price indexes.
