In the description of Dataset 4 given in Appendix D, the standard deviation reported as \(\sqrt{L/8}\) should be reported as \(\sqrt{L/4}\). Please find the correct Dataset 4 on this page that should be regarded by the reader as the final version.

Dataset 4: Impartial Second Preferences

In each constituency election, the number of Liberal second preferences assigned to Labour voters was determined by a random draw from a normal distribution with a mean of L/2 and a standard deviation of \(\sqrt{L/4}\), i.e., the normal approximation the binomial distribution with n=L/2 and p=0.5 (as if voters were independently flipping fair coins), and rounded to the nearest integer. The remaining Labour voters were assigned Conservative second preferences. The second preferences of Conservative and Liberal voters were determined in like manner.
