As you can see, the raw event count is 4647 but the conversion number is 4254. This is a completely unsampled report.
I reviewed this post which would seem to indicate that there's simply an error in data collection or something on GA4s end and it's been in there for 11 months, but that doesn't really make sense to me.
Does anyone have a more recent understanding of why these two numbers would not be the same?
That would correspond to the numbers I see in the chart results: 4.2k users is ≅ 4254 Conversions. 4.6k events is ≅ 4647 Event Count. So my theory is that Conversions is about Users and Event Count is about Events.
I guess this would mean that Conversions are scoped to User and Total Events are scoped to Events? Can anyone confirm or verify this?
Also, it seems wild to me that Conversions would be scoped to User since I can envision lots of scenarios where a single user would do multiple Conversions of the same type.
Am I crazy? Or wrong?
