The 'Occurrences' metric shows the number of hits where a given dimension was set or persisted. When you drag a dimension in Workspace to a blank canvas, Adobe automatically applies this metric to the project.
How this metric is calculated
Out of all hits in a report suite, include hits where a dimension item is defined or persisted. Some dimensions, such as eVars , persist beyond the hit they are set on. This metric counts both initial and persisted values.
