PDA Faction Arrows

Does anyone know definitively what the red/green/white arrows next to factions in the pda signify? I've read they indicate whether a faction is increasing /decreasing in strength but what does that actually mean? If green does that mean the faction has more stalkers than it started with? Does it mean the faction is in a state where they will spawn new members and are expanding? Additionally, I've noticed that reloading hardsaves reverses the status of the arrow at the time the save was made. If anyone can offer some clarification that would be great.

I've always assumed it was as you suggested, the faction either gaining territory and increasing it's strength or getting weaker from casualties. I don't know for certain, but that's what it seems like as factions with a red arrow that have one with a green arrow below them usually get toppled in the factions screen shortly after.

I noticed that too. I'm wondering if factions follow some cyclic pattern of growth outside of gameplay triggers. Bandits seem to go on the offensive around the same time each day. . not sure about the rest. I still can't find anything about what the arrows actually reference though.
