Data Discrepances

N/A
# 1
N/A

Hi, I have a question about data discrepances on Analytics. It is a simple issue but I really don't know how to solve it or understand it.

 

So, looking at the Analytics report tab, I choose in the calendar a whole year, so for example: from the first of january to the 31 of december and it gives me X number of sessions. Then, for further detail I extract the data month by month using the calendar and when I sum up the individual numbers from each month it doesn't give me the same number. So, why there can be a gap from almost 4000 visits between the two data. I have reviewed the data thousand times to make sure it is correct everything I do and it is. 

 

If any one could help me, I would be very pleased and gratefull.

Possibly due to the large numbers, your dataset when set to annual is being sampled and so is less accurate than when going month to month?
