The jaws ratio is a measure used in finance to demonstrate the extent to which a trading entity's income growth rate exceeds its expenses growth rate, measured as a percentage.

Strictly speaking it is not a true ratio in that the calculation is not expressed as one number divided by another, and is calculated as follows:

Jaws ratio = Income Growth Rate - Expense Growth Rate
