Question

For modified duration the common units are the percent change in price per one percentage *point* change in yield per year (for example yield going from 8% per year (y = 0.08) to 9% per year (y = 0.09)). This will give modified duration close to the value of **[...]**

Answer

Macaulay duration (and the same when rates are continuously compounded)
