    You know what, I never noticed them before, however I have to say I have no clue.

    I always assumed it was how many hubs in that category. Be nice to find out for sure though, good question.

      I thought that was the same as what Jackie said, though I have not looked it up.

    I am almost positive they refer to the number of hubs written to that category.  You'll note that "Literature" has a larger number than "Poetry" because the former figure includes all the hubs written to the latter, as poetry is a subset or smaller, more specific category *within* the broader "Literature".

    As of today there are approximately 163000  (http://hubpages.com/question/hot/) (check for hot, latest and best = 163000) discussions or question on HubPages in Hot, Best ,Latest or unanswered category out of which 20400 are in unanswered category (http://hubpages.com/question/unanswered/) .As such 142600 are answered divided into three categories whose some total is equal to sum total of all forum discussion on the right side of http://hubpages.com/forum/ which has many categories. If my answer or rather say imagination is incorrect then only HubTeam could account for the numbers.

    I have also noticed  these numbers  and think it means  the keyword  search on each category
