I've been stuck for about 20 minutes while working on a reporting application because I can't think of what to call this property. When requesting a report, the user must specify a start date, an end date as well as the "specificity" of the data points, for example "day", "week" etcetera. I have considered calling it "specificity" or "unit size", but I feel that none of those words properly convey the meaning of the property. What word (or words) would best describe the property?

Precision has two meanings related to data collection:
While your usage is not a precise fit for either meaning, it should be intuitive enough for the application's users.
I'd suggest periodicity
Another option is to use frequency of data.
