Previous Period calculation

How is the "previous period" determined?  If my date range is Feb 1- Feb 28, is the previous period January 1 - January 31?  Also, if my date range is April 1 - April 10, is the previous period March 1 - March 10?

 

My data source is Google Analytics.

I believe it's the same length of time prior to whatever date range you selected. For instance, the month of February would have a previous period of January, but for April 1-10, the previous period would be the last 10 days of March.
