I think we should say that the number set is zero
through nine (not 1-10 as we were taught in school),
making "zero" the first number in the set; thus the
offset by one. Of course zero is not a number, but a
placeholder for a number. Thankfully this concept was
invented a few centuries ago in India and brought to
the West by Arab scholars. Unfortunately I think it's
still not widely understood.
