Granularity of data refers to the detail with which data fields are sub-divided. For example, a postal address can be stored with low granularity as a single field or with high granularity as multiple atomic fields.
Granularity for a data analysis refers to the detail of the data in the analysis. For example, retail sales data can be analyzed for a group of stores and that analysis or dashboard has low granularity or an analysis with high granularity would analyze individual stores and present decision support results at the store level.
