I took the numbers directly from column B (2016 attendance) and column D (home variance - which I assumed meant net increases/decreases from the previous (2015) year) for my table.

- as for the variance, it appears to be how much the attendance varies from the league average. It is not an indication of change in attendance from one season to the next.


Yes, now that would make sense, the variance in the table would be the difference between the individual teams attendance and the average league attendance. The Als would be 4,300 below the average CFL attendance, the Argos 8,300 below, Ottawa at the average and teams like the Esks and Riders 4k above the league average.

Okay, thanks for pointing this out. :thup:

I had assumed (with only a cursory review) that "home variance" meant the YOY difference for each team, not the change from the league average (which now makes sense). Regardless, the main idea here was to report 2016 attendance numbers and, while not coming from a direct league source, I have found CFLdb data to be accurate in the past for other projects that I have used it for.
