Here, "proportionate" is an adjective to describe the kind of "change" that there is. You could also understand it as "comparable changes." Changes that are compared to something else or each other. This is a very technical term, so it's not used often in everyday conversation. Ex: The proportionate changes schools have made over the years vary in success. Ex: If you base the decision on the proportionate changes in user consumption, it seems fair.
