How do I say .002 in words?

The difference between 49.2% and 49% isn’t 2%, it is actually .002 because written out those numbers are .492 and .490: If this is correct then how do you say the difference in words. Is it two one hundredths of one percent, two one thousandths of a percent or what?

two tenths of one percent ::
(2/10)(1/100) = 0.2(0.01) = 0.002
