How to enable Audience Demographics Overview by Age & Gender for your website domain’s Google Analytics Property

I will explain how to enable Audience’s Demographics Overview by Age & Gender which will enable you t o bifurcate between your website traffic by age & gender.

 

As Google Analytics help explains:

 
Analytics now includes data on your users’ demographics (age, gender) and interests (affinity categories, other categories). You can analyze those data with two new categories of reports in the Audience section:

 
Demographics

  • Overview (overview of traffic by age and gender)
  • Age (traffic by age ranges)
  • Gender (traffic by gender)

 
Interests

  • Overview (overview of traffic by affinity and other categories)
  • Affinity Categories (behavior by affinity categories)
  • In-Market Categories (behavior by in-market categories)
  • Other Categories (behavior by other interest categories)

 
These reports let you see not only how many of your users visit over a date range, but also who those users are, and how their behavior varies by attribute (e.g., male vs. female).
