What contributes to a labels width?

I am trying to calculate the width of a label before it has been laid out by simulating its width as follows:

			Text text = new Text();
			Bounds bounds = text.getLayoutBounds();
			double labelWidth = Math.ceil(bounds.getWidth());

Unfortunately, it seems the label width I am predicting is a little less than the actual width of the label after layout (69 vs. 71). Could anyone enlighten me here – what else contributes to the width of the label than the font and the text?

(or could this be attributed to rounding differences inside label and text?)
