Oggetto: st: Percentage Change of a Probability

Hello, Statalist!

Is there a correct or oft-used term for the (percentage) change in the
probability of an event?

For example, if under condition A, the probability is P(A), but the
probability under condition B is P(B), is there a succinct, correct
(or common) term to describe [P(B) - P(A)]/P(A) (due to changing the
condition from A to B)?

Thank you for your time.

Best,

Misha
