I'm sure this has been asked here before, but I'm new here.... not new to photography, digital or film but still confused.

I purchased a Nikon D7000 recently... every place I look the specifications say this is a 16.2 mega pixel camera.... when I take a picture in the RAW format with the camera the mega pixel size of the file is right around 23 or 24.... what gives? Of course the jpeg files are around half of the 16.2... 8 or 9....
