Icons to show fluctuation[edit]

TemplateData for Increase

This is one of a series of templates to display an increase or decrease arrow icon. {{Increase}} is a green up arrow, {{Decrease}} a red down arrow, and {{Steady}} a flat line for no change. Where the quantity involved should be minimized (e.g. road accidents), use {{IncreaseNegative}} and {{DecreasePositive}} instead, which flip the colors.
