Goal based on event tracking shows different results

I have set up a goal in google analytics based on an specific event. The problem is there is a big difference between the recorded Goal Completions and the recorded Unique Events or Total Events.


For example for a given event in the date range 1 until 7 march there are 48 Goals Completions recorded and in the corresponding event tracking there are 61 Total Events tracked and 55 Unique Events tracked.


Why are these numbers different? And more important how do i set the goal to match the Unique Events tracked.

We do facing the similar issues currently on Google analytics.


In the Funnel Visualization, There are difference in the data displayed for the date range selected and with individual date selected.

For e.g. if we select 7th-8th March, then the count is displayed as 35 for one of the goal.

If we select 7th March, then there is 21 count. and there is no data display for 8th March.


Data is added to GA goal and can be displayed with date range selected. the same is not displayed for the individual current date selected in the funnel visualization.


Below is our script that we used in master page of the application:

<script type="text/javascript">
  var gaq= gaq || [];
  _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-********-*']);
  (function() {
    var ga= document.createElement('script'); ga.type= 'text/javascript'; ga.async= true;
    ga.src=('https:'== document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '';
    var s= document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);


Is there any thing we are missing in the above script or Google Analytic gets time to reflect the data for the individual date selected in the Goal funnel visualization?
