Data in Table differs from Scorecard data

Dear all, 

 

I have created a report which includes a table and some scorecards.

The table displays the Data from January to March (Dimension - Month Index - Metric: Sessions, Pages/Session, Avg. Session Duration, Users...)

The scorecards on the report should display the cumulated Users, Sessions, New Users of the selected period.

 

Comparing the data, the amount of the Users in the Scorecards differs from the amount in the table, when cumulating them.

Both features (Table & Scorecard) use the same data source.

 

Is there an explanation why the data differs?

Thanks in advance

Yes, this is likely because of the different date aggregations. For instance, in your table, you have the data split out by month, so you might have the same user who came to your site each month. That user would be counted separately in each table line. But in the scorecard, it's going to look at how many users there were in the three month period, so it would just count that user once.
