ADXL206 output question

I am interested in using the ADXL206 and have a simple question about its output:


In the datasheet, the X-axis is indicated with an arrow  in page 5.

I would like to know what will be the X-output of the chip when this arrow is pointing DOWNWARDS (i.e in line with earth's gravity)  and UPWARDS (i.e. opposite to the earth's gravity)?


The reason I am asking is that I saw in other accelerometer devices by ADI that the output decreases when the arrow points down, which seems a bit counter-intuitive. So, I thought of checking here before I go ahead and design the PCB.


Thanks and Regards,
