Sensor size on the canon G1X

I must be missing something here, as I do not understand the G1X specification which states that the sensor size is 1.5", and that of course is the diagonal measurement.

1.5 inches is equal to just over 38mm. The sensor size is stated s 18.7x14 mm, and that diagonal is 23.4mm.

So, what am I missing???
