I have a funnel chart with two segments:
- Country = US
- Country != US
My intuition was that these would be mutually exclusive - a user can only be in one country. However, there are some users who are in both of these segments.
I looked at one such user who was in both the US and non-US segments. Their user profile said they were in Australia. Most of their events were from Australia, but some of them were flagged as United States. These US events were server-sent events. In the server side case, we don’t have the user’s IP address.
My guess is that Amplitude is inferring the country from our datacentre server’s IP, which is in the US.
This muddles up my analysis :( Is it possible to somehow suppress it, or use the user’s most recent country value, or most frequent country?
