Retraction: Alcohol transport numbers

By

The Daily has retracted the June 1 article “Conflicting explanations over drop in transports.” The numbers of transports listed in the article were based on calendar year data, not academic year data.

Specifically, as of June 1, the 2014-15 academic year has seen 56 alcohol-related transports for students, according to the Office of Alcohol Policy and Education. This compares to 61 for the 2013-14 academic year and 54 for the 2012-13 academic year, indicating only a slight drop in transports.

The article reported 20, 88 and 92 alcohol-related transports in those three academic years, respectively. However, this data (provided by the Stanford University Department of Public Safety) in fact represented the number of medical, alcohol and transport cases during non-summer months in calendar years 2015, 2014 and 2013, and was misinterpreted by The Daily.

The Daily regrets this error.
