Why data based on a specific segment on a certain date change when i use different time period

Why do my results based on a specific segment on a certain date change when i use different time periods?

 

For example, I set a segment of people who use version_1 and the result is 12,000 active users on 8/8 with a specified time period of 8/1 to 8/20. When changing the specified time period to 8/5-8/10, the version_1 active users number on 8/8 changes to 9,000.

 

It seems that the longer time period I specify, the larger session/metric I get.

 

Does anyone have the same problem?

This could be a sampling issue. Try running the segment against just that single day and see if you have the option to increase your sampling to improve accuracy.
