The Original Article was published on 10 October 2012

In the Editorial ‘Fighting chance’ (Nature 490, 144; 2012), we implied that the link between a genetic variant and educational attainment was identified by the Social Science Genetics Association Consortium. In fact, it was identified, and refuted, in earlier work done by Daniel Benjamin.

In the News story ‘Economics and genetics meet in uneasy union’ (Nature 490, 154–155; 2012), we wrongly attributed to Enrico Spolaore the opinion that using genetic data in economics could help policy-makers to set immigration levels. He actually suggested that the work could reduce barriers to the flows of ideas and innovations across populations.
