Historical Background
Footfall ratio, a critical metric in retail and facility management, measures the number of visitors to a location within a given time. It became increasingly significant with the rise of retail analytics, allowing businesses to gauge store traffic and consumer behavior trends.
Calculation Formula
The Footfall Ratios are calculated using these formulas:
\[ \text{Footfall Ratio (people/day)} = \left( \frac{\text{Total People}}{\text{Total Time (hrs)}} \right) \times 24 \]
\[ \text{Footfall Ratio (people/week)} = \left( \frac{\text{Total People}}{\text{Total Time (hrs)}} \right) \times 24 \times 7 \]
\[ \text{Footfall Ratio (people/month)} = \left( \frac{\text{Total People}}{\text{Total Time (hrs)}} \right) \times 24 \times 30 \]
Example Calculation
For instance, if 300 people enter the store over 10 hours, the calculations would be:
 Footfall Ratio (people/day): \((300 / 10) \times 24 = 720\)
 Footfall Ratio (people/week): \((300 / 10) \times 24 \times 7 = 5040\)
 Footfall Ratio (people/month): \((300 / 10) \times 24 \times 30 = 21600\)
