I'm not sure of the cause of this discrepancy, have you got to the bottom of it yet Glom?Originally Posted by Glom
But I'll attempt to speculate, have you looked at the political viewpoints/agendas of the agencies involved? Is there any possibility that either of these figures are motivated in some way by funding imperatives on one side or the other?
The other thing would be of course how they measured the populace to come up with these figures. The most immediate way I can think of that they could change their measurement criteria would be to measure over a different radius from the blast site. Maybe 1 set of figures relates to a 5 mile radius and the other relates to a 10 or 20 mile radius, or whatever?
I don't know, hope you can get to the bottom of it though.
