Gratuitous Difference in Field Type for Business Analyst Demographic Layers?

Could someone from ESRI please explain why, in both the Business Analyst 2014 and 2015 datasets,

why many of the fields in esri_bg.bds have a type of double, but esri_tr.bds have type integer?

There are 152 such fields (eg  THH01)


Perhaps it doesn't matter; perhaps a snare waiting to catch me in the future.

I wouldn't be at all surprised were it the latter.


I find these kinds of discrepancy really disturbing.
