Comparing FY2022 to the prior fiscal year, the Walmart U.S. segment's net sales increased by $23.3 billion (6.3%) in FY2022 which was driven by growth in average tickets and transactions.

The increase in the gross profit rate for the fiscal year 2022 was primarily attributable to price management, which was driven by cost inflation, as well as merchandise mix, which includes making up for the temporary closures of our Auto Care and Vision Centers and growth in their advertising business, which was partially offset by higher supply chain costs.
