The data that you can see at a glance for each long-tail keyword are: average monthly search volume, mini volume trend graph, cost per click, estimated monthly traffic value, pay-per-click competition score, and the database source for the suggested long-tail keywords. The database source is especially useful if you are looking at and comparing results from mutiple databases.
