My Question or Issue

Hi, I have a question about the time_signature value in the section portion of the analysis object.  We are currently doing some research on song tempo and on about 20% of the songs we sampled, the time_signature value is 1.  A value of 1 seems unusual, since one never encounters a 1 in the numerator of a time signature in sheet music.  Further, when we calculate the time signature for these songs by counting the number of beats (from the beat portion of the analysis object) per bar (from the bar portion) based on the start times and durations of the objects it comes out to be either 3 or 4.  Can someone explain why the time_signature value is 1?
