Percent of total and count data

The meaning of the “% of total” data varies, depending on the context of the event and the totals for the category. When interpreting percentages, keep in mind that they are often useful for understanding general trends, but they can be misleading when taken in isolation.

For example, 50% of 200 events is much more meaningful than 50% of 2 events.

The “count” data is the total number of events that occurred during the sample interval. You can use count data to determine the validity of percentage results.
