Just a small toy example of that - if I consider the following dataset:

@prefix : <http://my-dataset/>.
@prefix geo : <http://geographic-dataset/>.
:item1 foaf:based_near geo:location1.
:item2 foaf:based_near geo:location1.

100% of the dataset correspond to links to another dataset.

Now, if I consider

:item1 foaf:based_near :location1.
:item2 foaf:based_near :location1.
:location1 owl:sameAs geo:location1.

, which is equivalent to the previous dataset, this number drops to 33%
