Percent increase and percent decrease are measures of percent change, which is the extent to which a variable gains or losses intensity, magnitude, extent, or value. The figures are arrived at by comparing the initial (or before) and final (or after) quantities according to a specific formula. It is assumed that both the initial and the final quantities are positive (larger than 0).
