Tuesday's article "UC System Seeks Unrestricted Donations to Increase Revenue" was accompanied by an infographic that used incomplete and incorrect data. The infographic consisted of two pie charts and a bar chart. The pie charts were said to show the percentage breakdowns of the sources and purposes of gifts to the University of California system. They were also supposed to show the monetary value from each source and for each purpose. The bar chart was said to show the percentage of total gifts that came from each of five groups - staff, faculty, parents, alumni and other individuals.

Though the infographic was meant to detail these items for the University of California system, the three charts reflected the numbers for only UCLA - some of which were themselves incorrect in the printed infographic. However, all the information in the actual article, to the best of our knowledge, was accurate.

The Daily Californian regrets this significant error. We take the need for accuracy seriously, and this infographic was not up to the standard to which we hold ourselves. The correct data for the infographic can be found at www.dailycal.org/article/111863/correction. If you have any questions or concerns, please e-mail me at [email protected]
