Does vocabulary count for levels?

Sorry if this has been posted before, but I couldn’t find a topic.

Does the ‘purple’ vocabulary have any effect on your level? I generally get my Kanji correct on reviews, but I often miss vocabulary words, so I wondered if that would slow me down in raising my level.

The only direct factor in leveling up is getting 90% of the current level’s kanji items to guru. Radicals can have an indirect effect because they unlock new kanji, and vocab could have an indirect effect if your item order settings mean you have to complete all of the previous level’s vocab lessons before you get to current level items.

But once they are in the review cycle they have no effect on your level.
