The Unique Visitors metric on the Google Analytics home dashboard is showing different values to when 'All Visitors' is selected as an advanced segment of Unique Visitors.
My understanding is that these values should be the same as the segment 'All visitors' is filtering (or in this case, not filtering) the metric of 'Unique Visitors'. Any help with understanding this better?
Also, if anyone knows of a resource where I can find the formulas that Google use for their metrics, that would be greatly appreciated. Figure it's all cloak and dagger but feel like I'm working in the dark.
