Worse, it doesn't count things that should be counted. For instance, we had 328,000+ people visit the joint last FY (by door counters, adjusted for staff, kids who run in and out, etc.). We know how many people attended library-sponsored programs, again by actual count.
However, we also have two television shows on the public access channel (which, I hasten to add, the Library started) and a radio show. Most businesses pay attention to their media audience -- but there is no place for me to report our audience figures.
It's another case of those in the field being ahead of those in the rear.
