French term or phrase: poids
"Afin d’identifier les transferts de consommation, calculer la contribution (poids) et l’évolution des niveaux N-1 dans le niveau N:
2) Pour caractériser la consommation , calculer
a) l’indice de saisonnalité
Famille saisonnière: périodes dont l’indice 120%
b) l’indice de régionalisation des ventes"

I'm not sure how to word "calculer la contribution (poids) et l’évolution des niveaux N-1 dans le niveau N" and what word to use for "poids" - percentage, proportion?

Thanks, Karen
