Data Studio Data doesn't match GA Data

Hi all,

Data retrived from data studio is a little bit different from GA ones.

I'm using only 3 metrics: session, pageviews, users in 1 dimension: year .

My date range is from 2016 Jan 01 to 2016 Dec 2016.

But there is a mismatch between GA and data studio results.

I have a GA premium account without sampling of data.

 

Anyone has resolve the problem?

How different are those numbers?

Keep in mind DS won't tell you if there's some sampling (which I hope is something that will be fixed!)

The difference is appreciable. Does DS sampling even if I have 360 premium account?

DS is using the Reporting API, so the same sampling limits apply but are higher for 360 accounts. See here.
