Growth rates are expressed in percent. If we calculate the average annual growth rate, considering the analyzed period is from 1 January to 31 December. It coincides not only with the calendar, but is usually accounted for in the statistics of financial year. It is most convenient to take the baseline value, which will be determined by the growth rate of over 100%. Its value in absolute terms should be known on 1 January.

2

Determine the absolute values at the end of each month of the year (AP). Calculate the absolute values of growth rates (P) as a difference between the two compared levels, one of which will be the base value of the indices on January 1 (Po), the second values of the indicators at the end of each month (P):

AP = P,

such absolute values of the monthly growth you should have twelve, the number of months.

AP = P,

such absolute values of the monthly growth you should have twelve, the number of months.

3

Add up all the absolute values of the increase for each month and the amount received divide by twelve is the number of months in a year. You will receive the average value of growth rates in absolute units (N):

P = (AP1 + АП2 + АП3 +...+ АП11 + АП12) / 12.

P = (AP1 + АП2 + АП3 +...+ АП11 + АП12) / 12.

4

Determine average annual baseline growth rate, KB:

KB = P / Po, where

In the value of the index base period.

KB = P / Po, where

In the value of the index base period.

5

Express the average annual baseline growth rate in percentage and you will get the value of the average annual growth rate (TRG):

Trsg = CB * 100%.

Trsg = CB * 100%.

6

Using indicators of average annual growth rates for several years, you can trace the intensity of their changes during long-term period and to use the obtained values for the analysis and prognosis of the situation in the economy, industry and the financial sector.

Useful advice

In the analytical calculations of the same frequency are used and the coefficients, and growth rates. They have identical essence, but are expressed in different units of measurement.
