The Demographics report helps you understand the age range and gender distribution of your audience. This data is based on signed in viewers from all devices. You can look at different graph types, dimensions (categories you can use to divide the data in the report), and combinations of dimensions to gain further insights.
Updates to the Demographics report
We recently made changes to the availability of data in the Demographics report to further protect viewer privacy.
The following demographics data will no longer be available:
- YouTube product: All Youtube apps will now be aggregated.
- Translation use: You can still see the geographic breakdown of your viewers, but you'll no longer be able to slice your Demographics report by translation use.
- You can still see top subtitle/CC languages in the Translations report.
- Private or unlisted videos: Demographics data is no longer available for private or unlisted videos and playlists.
- If your unlisted video is a video ad, you can still get demographic data use in the Google Ads for Video report.
Demographics data may also be unavailable for some videos and channels:
- Channel or public videos: You may not see demographic data if your public video or channel has limited traffic during the selected time period. You may be able to see demographics data if you extend the time period, or if traffic increases.

How to use the Demographics report
You can use the different metrics in the report to get a better understanding of your audience.
Age and gender distribution
By default, the chart in your report is organized by gender distribution and age group for your channel or video. Each bar represents the percentage of views or watch time for a given age group relative to the total. You can also see the same information in a bar or pie chart.
Toggling between dimensions below the chart will change the data and visualization in the table: For example, if you're looking at Viewer age and Viewer gender, you can select an extra dimension, like Geography. This will update the graph to show the age and gender distribution for a specific location.
You can add several different dimensions to your report to dig further into the data. For example, if you'd like to see the top videos on your channel watched by females aged 13-17, follow these steps:
- Select the age group 13-17 years in the table.
- Select Female. You’ll then see a list of top videos watched by females age 13-17 ranked by views or watch time.
- You can then select Geography to see from where these female viewers are watching your content.
- Select a video or country/region to get even more specific information.
You may only be able to see Demographics data for a subset of your viewers. The data may not represent the overall composition of your traffic.
