Here are a few definitions you may find helpful:

Opened: How many people opened your email.*

*Note that Apple has prevented open-rate tracking on all iPhone devices updated to IOS 15. This may impact MailChimp's reported open-rate negatively even though actual opens will be higher.

Total Opens: The total number of times your email was opened by all recipients (accounting for those who opened the same email more than once)

Emails Sent: The total number of emails you've sent for this campaign.

Clicked: The number of times a recipient has clicked on a website link in your email. Note that MailChimp is unable to track phone number clicks, so this click through rate will only account for website link clicks. Users who's call to action is a phone call may experience a reported click-through rate lower than actual.

Unsubscribed: The quantity of recipients who clicked on the unsubscribe link below your email.
