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

It looks like the update process for the extended stats got stuck. The 
files which have been published in recent days all are identical to the 
version of 2013-07-30, 
ftp://ftp.arin.net/pub/stats/arin/delegated-arin-extended-20130730

Thus allocations and changes made to the registry on 30 July or later 
are not accounted for in delegated-arin-extended-latest
