 Counts

Under the
 
and
 
, under "Descendants", menus are options to view the statistics or counts for the numbers of descendants of any person.  Each starts with the person's children, and keeps adding a row for each additional generation until no more are found.  With each are shown the number of people found, the average birth year for the people in that generation, and the total number of descendants.

For descendants, it works much the same way but going forward in time.  If there are multiple lines of descent to any person, they and their descendants are counted only once.

This include people from both your own branches and everyone else's, where yours may be linked in with theirs.  So over time, the numbers that you see for your branches will hopefully increase, as other researchers add on people that they have, and that you do not.
