"More than 60% of companies surveyed had at least one female director, UP FROM 58% in last year´s survey..."
Mais de 60% das empresas pesquisadas tinham pelo menos uma diretora, comparando com os dados da pesquisa do último ano QUE ERA 58% (das empresas).
UP FROM, denotes movement upwards. There is you have a point A where you are NOW compared with point B, THEN.
In the above sentence it´s the same as to say "we took a survey in companies in the market, and the data is":
NOW 60% of female directors are females.
THEN 58% of female directors were females.
See? there was an movement upwards, precisely from 58% to 60%.
So, FROM ....% TO% (when talking about B to A, the lesser to the higher point)
X % UP FROM Y%, last year (week, month, yada yada yada).
That is, the other way around, from B to A, from the higher to the lesser point.
