Percentage changes for negative numbers are seriously misleading and should be avoided. One reason is that, mathematically, the percentage change from -100 to +100 is the same as the change between +100 and -100: it is -200% oin both cases. However, few would argue that a change form a negative to a positive is the same a the change from a positive to a negative.

That said, the change from -292 to -175 is -40.1% approx.
