Aw-stats it's an awful (ah, wordgame :D) to track visitors, Why? Because it counts every petition to the server as a visitor.
So for example: Your site uses a style.css to give colors and form to the page, so every time you load your page, it also load the style file, you don't see it because it's just code. Awstats in this case count the load of the style file as a visitor.
Also happens with images, if you have an article with 3 images, awstats will count every load of the images as an impression.
That's why awstats is pretty inaccurate to track unique visitors, I suggest you to use Google Analytics or Statcunter (if you need real time statistics)
