I'd expect the YSA headcount to be pretty much equal to the membership count in a single student ward. Is the per-head amount for YSA higher than general membership?

By general membership do you mean the head count at a sacrament meeting? That count includes anyone attending (members, members not in the unit, and non-members). The capitation amounts are 12 for sacrament meeting attendance and 6.25 for YSA 'attendance'.

For the quarterly budget allowance both the sacrament meeting attendance number and the YSA attendance number could, in theory, exceed the potential number for each category.

No. In theory, a YSA is counted twice. Once as a member and again as a YSA.

This would be the same as a Primary child being counted as a member and also as a Primary child.
Or a youth being counted as a member and also as a Young Man or Young Woman.

In each case, there are not really two of them. They just count in two different categories.
