Abstract

In the September 2016 issue of this journal we published “Faculty Voter Registration in Economics, History, Journalism, Law, and Psychology,” which focuses on the ratio of registered Democrats to registered Republicans among faculty at 40 top universities. We subsequently realized, thanks to Sean T. Stevens, that we had mistakenly left out two Florida universities, University of Miami and University of Florida. In the present correction we now cover the two Florida universities and redo some of the overall results. The two Florida universities are very much like the average of the 40 universities we had reported on, so the overall results remain basically the same. In fact, to the first decimal point the overall ratio of registered Democrats to registered Republicans remains what it had been, 11.5:1.

This article is a corrigendum to Faculty Voter Registration in Economics, History, Journalism, Law, and Psychology by Mitchell Langbert, Anthony J. Quain, and Daniel B. Klein (EJW, September 2016).
