Does it matter if Google Analytics code is in the footer?


When I first switched to this theme, I read on the wordpress forums to put the Google Analytics code in the footer.php file. Ever since, I noticed that GA shows my website getting far less traffic than any other tracking plugin I've used. I've since read that it should be added through the ATO, so I've done that. Would anyone know if having the tracking code in the footer would explain the lower stats GA reported though?
