In your experience - Is the 2.5% decrease in air density per 10*C temperature increase valid at sea level through elevation?

Meaning, is 2.5% a good value to use at sea level (0 m above sea level) but if youre at an elevation of 1700m above sea level should this value decrease to (for example) 2.0% due to less oxygen in the same amount of air volume at elevation?

or is 2.5% relative from the base air density as temperature increase?
