Does this take into account the change that is sent with each transaction? For example, I have 50 bitcoin in an account, I send .001 to you, the transaction shows up as .001 going to your address and 49.999 going to another one of my addresses. Would that add 50 to the total transactions, or just .001?
It can't differentiate change. Really there is no such thing as "change" you are just making a payment from 1 address to 2 addresses 1 of which you happen to control, maybe. Or maybe you used SendMany and paid two employees at once.
