Data shows fewer rows in narrower duration.

I do a session report over a month, i get 250 rows of results 

I change the report to 2 weeks (part of the above month), i get 500 results! 

 

how is this possible? 

 

-- this is a report of sessions.

-- also saw this in report of page views

-- each row has a custom dimension primary

-- i notice that the sessions/page views cuts off at value=16 for one month report and at =8 for 2-week report

 

help appreciated!

Hi Anil,

If you're seeing that issue for custom primary dimensions only, it might be due to data sampling [1]. Do you see the yellow sampling bar in the upper right of the page?
