**Percentage Increase:** %

Percentage increase is a measure that quantifies the relative change in a value or quantity compared to its initial or original value, expressed as a percentage.

It is commonly used in various fields to assess how much a value has grown or expanded over time.

## How to Calculate Percentage Increase?

The formula to calculate the percentage increase is as follows:

Percentage Increase = [(New Value – Old Value) / |Old Value|] × 100%

Where:

- New Value: The current or final value.
- Old Value: The initial or original value.

The result is multiplied by 100% to express the change as a percentage. A positive percentage increase indicates growth or an upward change, while a negative percentage increase represents a decrease or a downward change.

Percentage increase is frequently used in financial analysis, economics, business, and various other fields to evaluate changes in data such as stock prices, sales figures, population growth, and more.

It provides a standardized way to compare and understand changes in values regardless of their scale or magnitude.
