I do not know why there is inconsistent data between the two, but this is something that ARIN should look into.  

I have been lead to understand that, for ARIN, the extended stats file reflects the registry state at a slightly different time (earlier by ~1 day) than the "standard" stats file. This is a likely explanation of the observed inconsistency.
