Year to Date

Year to date (YTD) indicates the period of time starting with the first day of the current calendar or fiscal year up to the current date.

This timeframe is typically used when analyzing sales performance trends, especially when comparing the data to competitors or industry peers.

Talking about sales performance specifically, it's usually referred to as the "sales to date" — the metric that refers to the total sales since the beginning of the year.
