Most Literate Cities - using wrong library data

The Most Literate Cities data is out http://www.ccsu.edu/page.cfm?p=15619

but they used the old 2005 NCES data...did not notice that IMLS is now collecting the data. I've contacted the researcher to alert them and suggested they rerun their estimates and re-release the report. We will see what happens.

Another fun research moment!

I just heard from the researcher (Mark McLaughlin) - the sources and methodology pages were in conflict. He assures me they used the most recent IMLS data in the analysis.

It's good to know somebody is keeping an eye on data users.
