Dimensions affecting metric totals

Age, gender and mobile dimensions will most likely affect the totals, read more here.

Missing goal completions

Goal completions based on events will not be viewable per Page. This is because events can fire multiple times per session while goals only can fire once, meaning that a goal completion can be spread out on multiple pages.

Metric values being slightly off

If you have a lot of data GA might read some of it and then estimate the rest. This sampling is done in the UI as well, look for if the shields becomes yellow in GA (see picture below). Read more about sampling for GA here.
