Current Data Retention Period for unpaid Google Analytics service

Hi,

I am using an unpaid service of Google Analytics at work. I am trying to find out the current data retention period. I found two internet sources (not from Google) and they show 25 months and 9 months. I like to get an accurate retention period from Google website. I have not been able to locate Google's webpage with this information. Can someone please help me?

Thank you!

Hi Jeffrey
Are you asking how long google keeps data in the Analytics history? As in, can you look back at data 2 years ago, 3, etc?
AFAIK there isn't a limit - I have a site with data back to 2006. I'm sure there are sites with even longer history. The key is using the same tracking code, as G uses that as the thing to tie the data together.
