Whoops I just found this thread
Separating Stats For Different Sites
Any more thoughts/comments?

Google has said they will be implementing reporting by domain in the future but have not given a date.
This has been discussed frequently here so there are a lot of topics that cover it.

do you think this is really a technical challenge for them or just witholding valuable data?

I think it's the second option, they are witholding valuable data.
Shouldn't be a problem for Google to display this kinds of this.
A typical Adsense ad url includes everything, the exact referal URL, colours that you use, size, ...

I hate that they do this. I mean they are literally witholding the data from the people creating the data!

It may be annoying, but from their point of view... If the advertiser were to know how much traffic is coming from one specific url, they may get a better deal by visiting that site and advertising directly.
Example: $1,000 worth of click throughs using Adwords
Referring sites ad costs: $750 per month
Advertiser would not use adwords, but go directly to the profitable site!

Perhaps, but in the majority of cases the advertiser would have to form and maintain relationships with dozens-hundreds of sites to match what adwords provides. And on the publisher side, their bulk of revenue is probably coming from dozens-hundreds of ads, so they would have work hard to maintain a profit over what adsense gives them.
Advertisers come and go. The overhead for maintaining all this is high, likely more than what initially appears to be savings by circumventing adwords/adsense...
I don't think the program would suffer by providing domain data.

I think the orginal poster meant that he puts advertisements on multiple sites that he owns, and he wants to know which of those sites generate the most revenue.
