Actually, I believe that estimate was compiled by the allies, and is
partially based on Nazi documents.

Because by 1948 they had better numbers, and those numbers have held
up over time despite further research.

Which is not a particularly useful source since almost all of its data
is copied from other sources.

Note also that the Nazi definition of "Jew" included many who were not
practitioners of the Jewish religion, whereas almanac numbers usually
count religious Jews.
