Format = Count, counts more than it should.

I Created a little test page, where you can compare the results between format=count and the MagicWords {{PAGESINCATEGORY:<CategoryName>}}

For editing you have just to create an Account.

Does this persist after running the SMW data update script?

I didn't look at it in detail but since {{#ask: [[Kategorie:Institution]]|format = count}} always accounts for a larger number than {{PAGESINCATEGORY:Institution}} could it be that either:

  • {{#ask: [[Kategorie:Institution]]|format = count}} includes results from all namespaces which {{PAGESINCATEGORY:Institution}} does not?
  • or [[Kategorie:Institution]] includes some subcategories that {{PAGESINCATEGORY:Institution}} does not account for as relevant in its selection scheme?
