There are two types of segments, the simple segment and the multi-part segment.

In the simple segment, you can filter list by upto five segmentation conditions and choose to include or exclude subscribers for each condition. In the multi-part segment, it is when you combine segmentation criteria.

This can also lessen monthly rates for paid MailChimp users since payment is based on the number of subscribers in an account.
