In our research article “Material flows and GHG emissions from housing stock evolution in US counties, 2020–60” (Berrill & Hertwich, 2021), we included an incorrect panel as part of Figure 2, which we wish to correct. The figure, which shows annual additions and losses from the US housing stock in different scenarios, repeated the results for Scenario 1 in the bottom left panel, rather than showing the appropriate panel describing results for Scenario 3 and Scenario 6. This was an author error which was not identified until after the original article was published.
The correct version of Figure 2 from Berrill & Hertwich (2021) is shown here. In the original article, we write that “In the high multifamily scenarios, annual additions of multifamily housing become higher than additions from single-family around 2030”. With reference to the corrected figure, the description of when additions of multifamily housing become higher than additions of single-family housing in high multifamily scenarios (3, 4, and 6) can be further clarified. In Scenarios 3 and 6, additions of multifamily housing become higher than additions of single-family housing in 2027, while in Scenario 4, additions of multifamily become higher in 2031. All other descriptions and interpretations of our results in the original article remain valid and do not change in light of the corrected figure.
The authors have no competing interests to declare.
