User Count by Country

I'm trying to pull a report that shows me the count of users by country to my website in a given month - however I'm only able to get to the new users. When I create a custom report to give me all users - it does not match the totals I get in the audience overview.


How can I get to these stats accurately?


Thank you in advance.

If you create a custom report with dimension Country and metric Users, it will match the audience overview
- you set the date range to match
- you select the Month bucket for the Overview report chart (buttons in upper-right of chart).

Note that Users can visit multiple times in a day, week, month, or year, so you cannot add up daily totals to get a monthly total -- you would be double-counting the returning users.
