Need clarification on LIS2DW12 Sensitivity/Resolution Specification

Hi, the datasheet for the LIS2DW12 3-axis accelerometer specifies a typical sensitivity of 1.952 mg/digit.

What does that mean exactly? What digit are they talking about. The output is contained in two 8 bit registers to make a 16 bit value. Are they talking about 1.952 mg/bit instead? Or else what format is the 16 bit output number (digit?) presented in?

Also it does not state what the actual bit depth is. OK, so the output is contained in a 16 bit number, but is the resolution 10, 12, 14 or 16 bits?
