Base Year Analysis

In accounting and statistics, the expression of financial information in a given year as a percentage of an amount in an initial year. A company may treat the first year of its operations or the first year it made a profit as the base year, expressing all financial information in those terms. Occasionally, governments or companies may change the base year to one that better represents "normal" performance.
