The Standard report will have all currently added metrics and the totals of the report will be correct for the entire Linkedin account. 

The Conversion report only contains tracked conversions ie. not any metrics or dimensions not related to custom conversions. The totals cost and value here will match the Conversion Cost and Conversion Value in the Standard report. Same conversion count metrics will get populated in both reports so looking at both reports at the same time will lead to duplicated values.

All other reports are demographic reports. The demographic data is approximate and scrambled by Linkedin to protect the user. Therefore these reports will in most cases not match the totals in your Standard report.

See all the available metrics further down in the article.

Restrictions regarding demographic reports:
Because these metrics are approximate, you may observe minor inconsistencies when comparing:

  • Similar time ranges, for example, reporting on results over 7 days vs. 8 days
  • The sum of daily metrics to the full corresponding time period
  • Reporting levels, for example, adding campaign level data and comparing it to account level data

To minimize the effect of this approximation, select:

  • A full time period instead of adding up daily metrics for that time period
  • The highest reporting level you want to view, for example, selecting account level data instead of adding up campaign level data

The following metrics are not available with demographics pivots.:

  • conversionValueInLocalCurrency
  • cardImpressions
  • cardClicks
  • viralCardImpressions
  • viralCardClicks

Because of restrictions from Linkedins API, the retention period for data in the demographic reports are limited to 6 months.
