Number of observations

Hello!

I am wondering why there are two different information about number of observations for schools.
In school profile page we can found one number of observation, and  https://www.globe.gov/about/impact-and-metrics/schools-with-many-measurements is showing another number.

Hi,

Different areas of the website count measurements differently.  Some places count the number of rows of data across several database tables.  Other places count specific table cells in select tables.  Depending on the protocol there are occasions where just specific samples are counted.  The https://www.globe.gov/about/impact-and-metrics/schools-with-many-measurements advertises "Approximate number of measurements" so it is not meant to be exact counts.

Thank you

Travis
