Churn rate, sometimes called attrition rate, is a calculation of customer turnover. It allows businesses that rely on subscribers, such as magazines and mobile phone carriers, to measure performance. The churn rate is normally calculated at the beginning of a business period, and throughout respective periods. To calculate churn rate, a business must determine how many customers discontinued services during a specific period of time.
