On the metrics page of the Tor network, there are two statistics that caught my eye: There is one dataset on the Onion-service traffic (both v2 & v3) and another dataset listing traffic for guards and exit nodes.

Now I was wondering if those two datasets are comparable in a sense that one can deduce the relative amount of traffic staying within the Tor network by simple division: (HS traffic/Exit node traffic) = % of traffic residing within the Tor network (e.g. hits an HS).

Is my thinking correct or are those traffic measurements actually not comparable?

Yes, I think your formula for approx hidden service traffic is right.
