Acceptance and rejection rates

There was a recent blog post at Frontiers pointing out that journals' publicly-available rejection rates are not associated with their impact factors. Their post discusses several factors that contribute to this, but I've been thinking about how rejection rates are calculated, particularly publicly stated rejection rates. For example, the 2013 rejection rate for both JEP:LMC and JEP:HPP is 78% and JEP:General is slightly higher at 83%. These are top-tier experimental psychology journals and those rejection rates seem intuitively appropriate for selective outlets, but I think they might be inflated because many papers are rejected with an invitation to revise and resubmit.
