How to intepret OVT score?

If the search result for a specific keyword on both the OVT-US and OVT-Taiwan is exactly the same, does it mean the keyword was seached 'exactly' the number of times in US and Taiwan? Or is the OVT score like the AC Neilson rating for TV - each score represent X percentage of people in that country seaching for that word.

Given the fact that US is 10 times bigger than Taiwan, one would expect the results for popular keywords on OVT-US be 10 times higher than Taiwan, but this is not always the case.

I believe US OVT is from yahoo.com, and TW OVT is from yahoo.com.tw.

Re: How to intepret OVT score?

I guess I didn't do a good job explaining my question. What shows up as the OVT score, is it EACH TIME someone searched for that keyword? For example, if a keyword shows up with a zero score, does it mean not one person searched for it that month? OR, is it that a score only shows up after X number of people searched for it (ie, one point = 10 searches)...
