Student TParker private msg quote post Address this user
If it matters the content was created by folks in British Columbia.

The sentence is meant to caution individuals that a number provided to them is a loose estimate. But, it is written, "All of these are estimates and you should use the information broadly."

Help me fix it!

lol

I don't understand the inference - "the folks in British Columbia." Does it refer to the difference between UK English and US?

Here goes -
"The estimates given are loosely based on broad information, and are provided an as approximation only."

Boy! That was tricky. I'd follow with a clear example just in case.

Yes, sometimes my CA clients use terms I would not. But then again, you'll hear dozens of dialects traveling through the U.S.

Thanks for the assist.

The numbers are estimates. Use with caution.

@Iamstevenb Damn straight! If you can get the point across with fewer words - do it... unless you're getting paid per word.
