I noticed something odd when using session based segments and looking at the number of users in google analytics.
When only using the "All sessions" segment for the month of august I can see that there have been 48 629 users to my site. When I apply another segment to the view so that I can see both "All sessions" and the customized segment, the number of users for All sessions increases to 51 298. The number of sessions stays the same.
I would have expected the number of users to be constant as well. Has anyone else encountered this or knows why it's happening?
The segment I'm using (besides the All session one) is session based and should include all sessions where a certain subset of the site has been visited. It's definition is: page contains /enterprise-products/.
So based on the google support site about this: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2992042?hl=en I draw the conclusion that the correct number of users is 51 298 since by using additional segments I have forced google analytics to calculate data on the fly and not use pre-calcualted aggregated data which causes problems for the user-metric. Did I understand that correctly?
