View your demographic reports

To provide a comprehensive and consolidated view of your Audiences and make audience management and optimization simpler, you’ll find the following improvements in Google Ads:

  • New audience reporting
    Detailed reporting about audience demographics, segments, and exclusions is now consolidated in one place. Click the Campaigns icon Campaigns Icon and open the “Audiences, keywords and content” tab and click Audiences. You can also easily manage your Audiences from this report page. Learn more About Audience reporting.
  • New terms
    We’re using new terms on your audience report and throughout Google Ads. For example, “audience types” (these include custom, in-market, and affinity) are now referred to as audience segments and “remarketing” is now referred to as “your data”. Learn more about the Updates to Audience terms and phrases.

Gain insights about which demographic segments your ads are reaching by viewing your demographics reports. Learning about the segments that bring you conversions can help you:

  • Understand your customer base
  • Understand areas of growth potential
  • Assess your campaigns and ad groups
  • Make informed adjustments to advertising strategy
  • Manage and analyze multiple demographic targeting methods

Before you begin

This article explains how to view your demographics reports and how to use that data to improve your targeting. Learn more about demographics targeting

Example

Anna, who runs an online shoe store, wants to understand how her ads are doing with the demographic targets she selected. In the demographic chart, she can select "Clicks," "Conversions," or "Impressions" to see how her ads are performing across all targeting segments, compared to her advertising goals. Because the chart shows that her ad viewers are mostly male, 25 to 34-year-olds, and people who aren't parents, Anna could use these insights to tailor her ad campaigns to these specific audience segments.

Instructions

Note: The instructions below are part of the new design for the Google Ads user experience. To use the previous design, click the "Appearance" icon, and select Use previous design. If you're using the previous version of Google Ads, review the Quick reference map or use the Search bar in the top navigation panel of Google Ads to find the page you’re searching for.
