```Question 65831
Use the following formula to find the % of increase
{{{ (Difference/original) * 100 = Percent of increase or decrease }}}
Values are rounded!!!

USA
{{{ (12119-8006)/8006 * 100 = USA }}}
{{{ 4113/8006 * 100 = USA }}}
{{{ .5137 * 100 = USA }}}
{{{ 51.37 = USA }}}

{{{ (2571-388)/388 * 100 = C }}}
{{{ 2183/388 * 100 = C }}}
{{{ 5.6262 * 100 = C }}}
{{{ 565.62 = C }}}

Europe
{{{ (17773-1991)/1991 * 100 = E }}}
{{{ 15782/1991 * 100 = E }}}
{{{ 7.9267 * 100 = E }}}
{{{ 792.67 = E }}}

Japan
{{{ (10975-32)/32 * 100 = J }}}
{{{ 10943/32 * 100 = J }}}
{{{ 341.9688 * 100 = J }}}
{{{ 34196.88 = J }}}

Other
{{{ (10024-160)/160 * 100 = O }}}
{{{ 9864/160 * 100 = O }}}
{{{ 61.6500 * 100 = O }}}
{{{ 6165.00 = O }}}

So ... if you want to see the World as compared to the USA ... use the following:
((World 1997 - USA 1997)-(World 1950 - USA 1950))/(World 1950 - USA 1950) * 100
{{{ ((53463-12119)-(10577-8006))/(10577-8006) * 100 }}}
{{{ (41344-2571)/2571 * 100 }}}
{{{ 38773/2571 * 100 }}}
{{{ 15.0801 * 100 }}}
{{{ 1508.01 }}}
So outside the USA, production increased 1508% between 1950 and 1997
And when comparing Canada and Europe ... Europes % of increase is higher.
