Ohio Summit county birth year conflicts in online databases?

Posted: 1492564100000
Classification: Birth
I have many relations that I have been looking at who resided in Summit County, Ohio. I noticed a conflict between two databases online at Ancestry.com -- Ohio, Birth Indexes, 1908 - 1964.and Summit County, Ohio, Marriage Records, 1840-1980. For a number of records, the birth dates in both databases are the same except they are exactly one year apart.

The timeframes of births may be in the 1920s or 1930s. I was tried to find an example of a person not living and don't have one yet. I will keep looking. In the meantime ...

Has anyone else noticed this? Does anyone know the source of the error and which database could be considered more reliable for Summit County?

Thanks for any insights.
