Ratio analysis is a method of financial analysis based on financial accounting ratios; comparing various accounting items with each other as ratios.

For example, Days sales outstanding.


The term 'ratio analysis' is also used to describe a broader quantitative analysis, also including relevant operational and market measures in the various ratio calculations, as well as accounting items.

For example, Price to earnings ratios.
