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|
