They are also different stats which is why they give such different numbers.

In a theoretical world with evenly distributed traffic patterns if 1%
of users were IPv6 enabled it would require 100% of content to be IPv6
enabled before your traffic stats would show 1% of traffic going over
IPv6.

If these figures are representative (google saying 1% of users and
AMSIX saying 0.5% of traffic) then it would indicate that dual stacked
users can push ~50% of their traffic over IPv6. If this is even close
to reality then that would be quite an achievement.
