What are metrics?

When raw data is combined to produce a meaningful measure, we refer to the result as a metric. Certain metrics have become standard across the game industry, because they’ve proven valuable at informing the team and guiding the decision-making process.

Some examples include:

  • New Players
  • Monthly Active Users
  • Session Length
  • Retention
