CORRECTION TO CROSSTABS AS OF 4:42EST, SEPTEMBER 12TH , 2011
Our initial set of crosstabs this morning contained an error in the “Other” column under the ”RACE” tabs. The initial set of crosstabs showed the same number of BLACK respondents (194), in the OTHER column within the RACE category. This errror has been corrected, and the tabs now show the correct number of OTHER respondents as 18. THIS ERROR CORRECTION DOES NOT CHANGE THE RESPONSE PERCENTAGES FOR ANY QUESTION IN THE SURVEY. The error only reflected an incorrect number of respondents for “other” responses within the race category. Any further questions regarding this error should be directed to David Flaherty at 303-861-8585 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
