Google Analytics Demographics Not working

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

My demographics section isn't working anymore. It has this listed above it: 

 

Some data in this report may have been removed when a threshold was applied.

 

I'm not sure what it means, or what I may have done in order for it to remove. I've tried disabling the feature and enabling it again, but it's not picking up anything. Anyone have an idea of how to fix this?

 

Thank you!

No worries. Smiley Happy

You have to have a certain number of users and even then, if you apply a
segment, etc that cuts your audience size, you'll get the same nessaging.

Hi Kayla,

If you don't have enough users in the dataset you are viewing, demo data will be disabled. The idea is to only provide it in aggregate and to protect individuals and small sets of users. The same is true in the UI.

Oh ok, so I have to have a certain amount views for it to populate the report? Sorry, I'm still new to this so I don't fully understand everything and how it works. Smiley Happy

Hi,

I activated the Google Analytic Demographics but get the message regarding threshold and I have many users.  Is it because it doesn't pick up old data just from this point forward even though I created an account last year?

Hi Jackie/Ronnie,

 

You have to have enough traffic over the data range from when you turn it on.  That is, GA does not want you to see data on small numbers of users, they want you to see it aggregated over large numbers of users.

 

Just be patient and with some traffic and time the data will populate.

 

Best,
