    Hi all,

    I'm hoping someone can help me. I'm writing a work report and trying to figure out what % increase there is between one percent and another.

    The example I have is; 91% of those those who feel part of a community are satisfied with their overall experience, compared to 63% those who don't feel part of a community are satisfied with their experience.

    I'd really like to be able to say those who feel part of a community are x% more likely to be satisfied with their experience, but I'm not sure how to work it out.

    Any help and explanation would be great, thank you!!

    Hi olive99 and welcome to MHB!

    It's simple subtraction: 91 - 63 = 28, so those who feel part of a community are 28% more likely to be satisfied with their experience.
