When you go into Resource Usage view, every resource in your resource pool is shown regardless of whether or not they have been assigned to tasks. Also any task that has not yet been assigned to a resource is shown.
I was asked recently whether there is a way to only view the resources that are being used. If you filter on the Work column and select as your filter >0, you will get the desired result.
