How to calculate the size of the events per field?

I have a query as follows

index=abc sourcetype=def | stats count by field_A | eval mb=round(count/1024/1024,2)

which gives me the result as follows

field_A count mb
jjjh 237606517 230.43
gffgf 2763240 2.67

Now, my question is that is the megabytes(mb) calcullation per each field is correct?

Also the count for each field value is it in bytes ?

I am a bit confused and all I'm trying to get the result as follows

Field_A - Count of Event - Average size of that event

Like this:

index=abc sourcetype=def 
| eval bytes=len(_raw)
| stats count avg(bytes) BY field_A
| eval mb=round(bytes/1024/1024,2)

I don't really get what you're trying to do.
You're counting the events, and then divide the count by 1024 twice to get an MB value?
Are you trying to get the actual size of the events and the average event's size?
