Recently, Kim, and Imamura and Yokoyama derived an exact formula for superconformal indices in three-dimensional field theories. Using their results, we prove analytically the equality of superconformal indices in some U(1)-gauge group theories related by mirror symmetry. The proofs are based on well-known identities in the theory of q-special functions. We also suggest a general index formula taking into account the U(1)J global symmetry present for abelian theories.
