Percent Change

In a comparative date range display, a positive or negative percentage that indicates the size of the increase or decrease between the first and second date range. A value of 100% indicates that the second date range’s value is twice that of the first date range’s value; that is, 100% more than the first value. Percent change is calculated by subtracting the first date range’s value from the second date range’s value and dividing the result by the value of the first.
