If you're setting up a retail business, being able to accurately predict its footfall will help you determine everything from the location you choose to how you price your stock to how you plan your cash flow.
Total growth: the percentage difference between the figure (sales, footfall etc) now compared to during the same period 12 months ago.
Like-for-like growth: the same figure as total growth, but without stores which have opened or closed in the intervening year. Like-for-like growth is always smaller than total growth.
