Dimension and Metrics

 

In general a dimension is a non numeric data field. For example the visitors browser or language are dimensions. On the other hand a metric is a number which belongs to a dimension or can be standalone. You can combine multiple metrics with one dimension. A more detailed explanation can be found here. The combination of a dimension and a metric must be valid. Here are all available dimension and metrics described and their valid combinations.

GAnalytics supports to define more than one dimension or metric. Be aware that you can use only one dimension in a chart but multiple valid metrics.
