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.
Depending on the data that's most important to your goals, you can see demographic charts for clicks, conversions, or impressions.
