Based on the table here viewtopic.php?t=5642, It looks like it's a D-Word (4 bytes) integer, so I'm betting that it's not stored the same as what the game shows. Try "Unknown" to start then "Increased/Decreased" (or "Changed/Unchanged" if that fails). But also based on the code from that table it looks like things might be a bit more dynamic. I would even try asking in that topic. I know when I post a table, I'm generally willing to help some one learn how to make a table on their own.

Post more information.
What scan types did you use (i.e.: Have you only scanned for an exact value)?
What direction did you go (i.e.: Increased display value = Increased scan).

If you have the display value, try and see where and from what that value gets written. It could be some kind of basic encryption, some times just a simple XOR with the value as the source and destination operands.

Just from experience with the game, the values are exact.. no encryption whatsoever.

Finding gold will lead you to find also Workers, and all the other stats in the dissect data structure.
