I agree also that the "53%" figure doesn't have enough surrounding context and information to make judgements on exactly what it means.
There are lies, d-d lies, and statistics. The rate with contributing factors would be more demonstrative than a top-level grouping. I would hazard a guess there are statistics galore in the underlying data. It would be interesting to do an analysis. If you enjoy that sort of thing...
