Asset age ratio Description The company
Average age ratio As long as straight-line depreciation is used, this is an accurate estimate of asset age as a percentage of depreciable life.

Dollar General Corp.’s average age ratio of depreciable property, plant and equipment improved from 2018 to 2019 and from 2019 to 2020.
Estimated total useful life Over longer time periods, this ratio is a useful measure of company’s depreciation policy and can be used for comparisons with competitors. Dollar General Corp.’s estimated total useful life of depreciable property, plant and equipment decreased from 2018 to 2019 but then slightly increased from 2019 to 2020.
Estimated time elapsed since purchase The approximate age in years of a company’s fixed assets. Useful for comparison purposes. Dollar General Corp.’s estimated time elapsed since purchase of depreciable property, plant and equipment improved from 2018 to 2019 but then slightly deteriorated from 2019 to 2020.
