It was found that historically most stepwise devaluations have had difficulty in sustaining a real devaluation over the medium term.

This paper argues that the primary force behind the large fall in real exchange rates that occurs after large devaluations is the slow adjustment in the price of nontradable goods and services. Subtract the pre-devaluation exchange rate (against the dollar or your currency of choice) from the devalued exchange rate.

For instance, if the pre-devaluation rate is 24 dinars (or other currency), and the post devaluation rate is 37 dinars, the difference is 13 dinars on the dollar. Devaluation is the deliberate downward adjustment to the value of a country's currency relative to another currency, group of currencies, or standard.
