Metrics, along with filters and breakdowns, determine what data is shown in your reports. Metrics represent the values that you're measuring. For example, you can measure your account performance by looking at your earnings, number of clicks, number of page views and so on.
What do metrics do?
Metrics represent the kinds of data or values contained in a report. They're usually arranged in columns and contain numbers or percentages. When you add breakdowns, metric values are recalculated based on the new order or groupings that the breakdowns create. Adding or removing metrics adds or removes a column of information from your report. You can also use metrics to help you identify fluctuations in your account performance by comparing individual metric values to a metric's average value.
