I am new to this forum so hello from me.

I have a problem at work and want to understand what statistics can be used to solve this.

I want to find out the percentage of true growth of a business activity. It's increasing month on month and I know how to calculate the percentage increase. What I want to do with statistics is to take into consideration our customer numbers are increasing also.

For example.

If I compare January 2020 to January 2021 the business activity has increased by 32.1%.

Our customer numbers for the same period have increased by 26.7%

So would the actual increase be 5.4%?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Paul
