THEORY: A scientifically verified, interrelated body of general principles, axioms, and assumptions that is used to explain and understand real world phenomena. Theories are the cornerstone of the scientific method. They generate the hypotheses that are verified against real world data, which is the day-to-day process of doing science. The construction and refinement of theories, accomplished through the hypothesis verification process, is also the basic goal of doing science.

CONSUMER PRICE INDEX FOR ALL URBAN CONSUMERS: This is the official name and designation for the Consumer Price Index that's commonly reported in the media. It is officially abbreviated CPI-U. Because it is THE standard, it usually goes by the shorted abbreviation CPI. The CPI-U was introduced in 1978 by the Bureau of Labor Statistics to address some of the deficiencies in the existing consumer price index, which now has the designation of CPI-W. In particular, the newer CPI-U includes the prices of goods and services purchased by about 80% of the non-institutionalized population while the older CPI-W includes about only 32 percent (see ).

MARGINAL COST OF SEARCH

The incremental cost incurred by additional search effort is the marginal cost of search. Marginal cost of search, also termed marginal search cost, is comparable to marginal cost of short-run production analysis. Marginal cost of search increases with an increase in search effort and is represented by the marginal cost of search curve. This is one half of the efficient information search decision. The other is marginal benefit of search.
