Year-Over-Year Growth

Year-over-year (YOY) growth is a metric that compares growth over a certain time period against the same period the previous year.

In other words, this is a side-by-side comparison of the two time periods (usually a month or a quarter) exactly one year apart.

This allows you to see a bigger picture and identify the long-term trends in the company's performance.
