A good word to show the level of data aggregation.

My business statistics class started at Yokohama National Univerisy for the international students from all over the world.
Just to explain some basics for the new students, I was struggling to show the level of aggregation of data in my class.
This is a concept that you need to learn for managing data itself before studying some statsitics.
Today I found the word “granularity”.
I guess it is not that common word even for English speakers but it really fits the concept.
