Within some of the widgets on your dashboard, you will notice a percentage increase or decrease that is relative to the date range selected at the widget configuration stage of set-up.
This percentage indicates how your data has changed since a previous period of time.
If the current value displayed in your widget is greater than 0 and the previous value was 0, the percentage increase will be the current value multiplied by 100.
For example, if you have a widget that is displaying 50 Facebook Ad Clicks over the past 7 days and, in the previous 7 days, this same ad received 0 clicks, then the widget will show a percentage increase of 5000%.
However, if the value isn’t 0, the percentage change will be calculated slightly differently i.e Increase ÷ Original Number × 100
Using the same example, if the next week you have 60 clicks on your ad, the percentage increase will be 20% since the previous 7 days
