The location you see displayed in your stats is provided by the ISPs. And it's not the visitor's actual location, but rather the data center.

Their are always errors in GEO data.

You may find a source who puts a particular visitor in the correct location, but it will be out for others.

It's always the location of the ISP's datacenter for the particular IP block to which the UIP belongs, never the actual location of the user, which is only known to their own ISP through their account details.

It's pretty rare that the ISP location actually coincides with the user's own location. It may be in the same general area, but there's no guarantee.
