How is per-tag reputation calculated?

I am trying to understand the the tag numbers in people's profiles.

When I see a non-wiki answer net voted to 3 and its owner has number 1 shown to the left of its tag in their profile (and no other listed answers in that tag), would that simply mean that I looked there too soon after the last two upvotes?
