Statistical indexes are also used to track or measure changes in the economy (for example, the Consumer Price Index) and movement in stock markets (for example, Standard & Poor's Index). Such indexes are usually keyed to a base year, month, or other period of comparison.

In mortgage financing, the term is used to determine adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) interest rates after the discount period ends. Common indexes for ARMs are one-year Treasury Securities and the national average cost of funds to savings and loan associations.

A high mitotic index [[greater than or equal to]10/10 (high-power field)] and high Ki-67 expression (>10%) can serve as useful indicators for diagnosing LMS, distinguishing benign tumors, and predicting an aggressive clinical course.
Interestingly, ctDNA levels also correlated with high proliferation rate, assessed either by mitotic index (P = 0.003) or by tumor grade (P = 0.003, Table 1).
