GA4 Data Delay: Data Freshness

After using Google Analytics 4, many users should feel that the data delay in Google Analytics 4 is longer than that in UA.

What is Data Delay?

Data freshness is used in GA4 to describe data delay.

Data freshness is how long it takes Google Analytics to collect and process an event from your property. If that process takes 20 minutes, then data freshness is 20 minutes.

 

Data Delay Rule

Google Analytics allows for a data processing delay of 24-48 hours. During that time, data may change, so reports may not be consistent when viewing the last 24-48 hours in an account. 

The delays of different reports are as follows:

Interval Typical processing time Properties Data limits per property Query coverage
Realtime Less than 1 minute 360, Standard None Limited to a few dimensions and metrics
360 intraday About 1 hour 360 Premium Normal and Premium Large as defined All reports and API queries, except these
Standard intraday 4-8 hours Standard Standard Normal All reports and API queries, except these
Daily 12 hours 360, Standard Standard, Premium Normal All reports and API queries
Daily 18 hours 360, Standard Premium Large All reports and API queries
Daily 24+ hours 360, Standard Premium XLarge All reports and API queries
