The Chief Justice, That Centrist, and Also Ninth Circuit, Most Reviewed Not Most Reversed

Supreme Court of the United States statistics have been updated here from SCOTUSWiki (Thanks, folks.).
First surprise: the Chief Justice was in the majority more often than Justice Kennedy; the Chief Justice appears to be working for more agreement between justices. Second surprise: though the Supremes reviewed more decisions from the Ninth Circuit, they reversed a smaller fraction of them than they did of the cases they took from the Second, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh and Eleventh Circuits.
