We use the quantity of tickets remaining for the top 3 prize spots.  Until recently, this was the minimum published prizes remaining for almost every state.  As states have expanded their publishing prizes remaining for all prize values, our formula still applies.  We'll calculate it based on how ever much data the state will publish.  The more data the better.  Some states give out all the data and some do not.  The challenge is collecting all of that data on every game every day and being able to do something with it.  That's what we do- we scrape it all, ingest it into our database, normalize, analyze it for errors and process every new game available.

As for statistical anomalies - surprisingly few.  The statistics generally align to what the published odds are when a game is created.  When top prizes are won, are literally all over the map.  Sometimes the top prizes go early and sometimes they go late in the life of the game, but when the top prizes haven't been won and the number of available tickets dwindle, that's when we start to see the lotteries 'pull the tickets' from the retailers.

Finally, the only comparison we can see to WHERE tickets are won, is based solely on the number of tickets sold. And this makes sense - the retailers and cities that sell the most tickets usually have the same proportionate number of winners.  I've seen a lot of people try to do this analysis, but all they end up creating is a HEAT MAP of which retailers sell the most tickets.  There tends to be a statistical correlation between number of tickets sold and the number of prizes won.
