HIGHER SHARE TRENDS PAGE

  • categories and sub categories taking the highest recorded share of the yearly data (expense, n° of purchases, n° of days of purchase), in the past years
(n° of days pf purchase on any item is put against the total n° of days on which money was spent in the year: that’s how frequent the expense on the item is within the overall expense)
  • months taking the highest recorded share of yearly expense or n° of purchases, in the past years
  • months with the highest recorded expense frequency, in the past years
(expense frequency is the n° of days on which money was spent in the month, over the n° of calendar days in the month: that’s how frequent the expense is in the month)
  • quarters taking the highest recorded share of yearly expense or n° of purchases, in the past years
  • quarters with the highest recorded expense frequency, in the past years

 

  • for each quarter, categories and sub categories taking the highest share of the quarterly data (expense, n° of purchases, n° of days of purchase) in the past years
any item or month or quarter taking a percentage lower than the highest, but by less then 5% of the highest, is regarded as taking the highest recorded percentage
you have to log expense on more than 3 years, for this app’s page to give you info
the items, months, quarters, are listed from the one with the higher n° of years where they take the highest recorded percentage of the total for the year (or the quarter, on Distribution Page)
is there any trend?:
– you can look at the n° of years where the same item, month or quarter, takes the highest recorded percentage of the total, over the n° past years considered for the calculations at label ‘Years:’: for example, for expense in the year, 3/4 means that in 3 of the 4 past years of expense, the item takes the highest recorded share of the yearly data
over the years some event might happen that changes your spending habits a lot. Therefore, data from the years prior to that one, can’t be used to spot any trend for the future. You can select a new start year for the calculations, by tapping the clock icon
