### Metrics

#### What is the difference between the “Share of Count (in %)” and the “Share of Total (in %)”. I get different results in my chart depending on the one I select and I can’t figure out why they are different.

Count represents the number of records containing a value for that field.  Total is the sum of all values for that field.  The percentage is calculated by comparing the count or value against a set of grouped fields to the overall count or overall total.

###### Example of using "Share of Count"
• Group by Gender, with the metric "Share of Count" on Student ID.
• This shows the percentage of students who are male or female, compared to the overall number of students.
 Share of Count (in %): Student ID Count: Student ID Male 49% 637 Female 51% 663 Overall 100% 1,300

i.e. More students are female.

###### Example of using "Share of Total"
• Group by Account Name, with the metric "Share of Value" on Opportunity Amount (in dollars).
• This shows the percentage of each account's total opportunities as compared to the total opportunity amount across all accounts.
 Share of Total (in %): Opportunity Amount Total: Opportunity Amount Account A 20% \$16,400,000 Account B 50% \$41,000,000 Account C 30% \$24,600,000 Overall 100% \$82,000,000

i.e. Account B makes up 50% of the overall total opportunities of \$82,000,000.
