Report differences

Dimensions & metrics

The Raw Data reports has more granularity in that it has a lot more dimensions and where each row is an event. The Aggregated report has fewer dimensions but has aggregated metrics (i.e. Sessions, Loyal Users) as well as Cost data (in the Daily Partner report).

Country definitions

  • The country of the installation is used in the Aggregated reports.
  • The country of the event is used for Raw Data reports.

Organic data

  • Aggregated report include both paid and organic data.
  • Raw Data reports has paid and organic in different reports (and organic reports require specific AppsFlyer permissions).

LTV vs Activity

  • The Aggregated reports contain metrics with Life Time Values (LTV) and shows each event aggregated on the Install Date.
  • The Raw Data reports show each event attributed to the Event Date (aka Activity Date).

That means that a purchase made today will be shown if you look at today for Raw Data reports, but it will be shown for the date the user installed the App (up to 2 years back) for the Aggregated reports.
The Aggregated reports will match how the AppsFlyer UI aggregates the data. However if you compare the Raw Data reports with the AppsFlyer UI you will have to look at the Install Date in Funnel instead of the ordinary Date dimension.

Historical data

  • For Aggregated reports we go back until the date of the first app install recorded in AppsFlyer or maximum 2 years back (unless more is requested).
  • For Raw data reports we go up to 45 days back, depending on user quota limitations.
