Fallout page totals visit deduplication?

aablank2 11-04-2019

In the Fallout visualization, you can right click on a touchpoint and select "Breakdown fallout at this touchpoint."  The result is a table (below) that lists alternate touchpoints rather than the desired one.  I was going through this report with a user the other day a realized that the total was lower than adding up the visits for each page.  Generally Analytics de-duplicates visits and the like in these circumstances.  Because each fallout scenario is based on visits (not visitors in this case), I'm not clear of one where de-duplication is necessary.  Shouldn't each visit be discrete?

Does anyone know of a simple example to convey to my users?

I am struggling with same question. How do I explain the fallout number as it does not add up between the two steps (starts and completes) I've identified in the fallout report.

This doesn't quite address my question.

If the report is supposed to show the just the next page of a given sequence, how can there ever be duplication?  What's an example where there are two sequences where duplication exists and the report must account for it?

Hi aablank2,

This number is designed to show the Total. This is why it's a deduplicated number of Visits.

If you are eager to see the sum of line items, build a calculated metric with the Cumulative function and add Visits as a parameter. This will give you what you are looking for.
