### Percent of Total Change

This aggregate should be understood as
“Change in (Percent of Total)”, not as “Percent of (Total Change)”. It is the
result of calculating Percent of Total on two different columns, and then
calculating the difference between them. The result is presented as the
difference in *percentage units*, n.b.

This aggregate is typically used for comparing Percent of Total based on current values, to Percent of Total based on previous values. Therefore, the column specified as “Weight Column” in the settings, should be the column containing previous values.

The aggregate value is calculated as a ratio between 0 and 1 and will be presented as a percentage value by applying a percent format string in the aggregation settings. Optionally, you can emphasize that the value is a percentage units by customizing the format unit, for example: 0.00%'-units'.
