It seems like data reports such as events and referrals, page title reports are not matching with the data in my GA account?

Here is a screen shot. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwdrnWCIcAxoR0VtTkdJcHJGaDg/view?usp=sharing 

left side is data studios, right side is GA data. They do not match for the same date range.

Data Studio fetches data with "Low precision" (Quicker). If you have a lot of data, this will result in very small samples being used, with the result that the data might look very strange. You can see if that is the problem - if you are normally using "High Precision" (Slower), by switching to "Low Precision" in GA and see if the numbers matches better.

 

There is a way to use "High Precision" by using the GA plug-in in Google Sheets, then setting up that sheet as a data source for data studio. There are some limitations in that, but it might be useful in some situations.

Hi, 

 

We use google premium. I read in other forums the charts, etc should all be unsampled data if you are a premium member.
