Question about the usage of "the same as" In New York, the prices declined 5% compared with that in 1989, while in Tokyo the percentage was up to 7.5%, the same as the figures for London. In the above sentence, is the position of "the same as" correction? Or should I add "which was" in front of it? How to express it in a natural/ native way?

In New York, (the) prices declined by 5% compared with (those in) 1989, while in Tokyo they were up 7.5%, the same as the figures for London. You don't need to add 'which were'.
