The original article was published in EPJ Data Science 2016 5:9
Unfortunately, the original version of this article [1] contained an error. Within the caption of Table 2 the sentence ‘The combination of all hypotheses explains most of the variation in the data (20%)’ should have read ‘The combination of all hypotheses explains most of the variation in the data (15%)’. Table 2 has been corrected in the original article and is also included correctly below.

1Primary language.

The combination of all hypotheses explains most of the variation in the data (15%). The most plausible explanations are the number of bilinguals and shared religion. The results of MRQAP agree with the ranking of hypotheses by the HypTrails algorithm. All statistics except those labelled with are significant at the 0.05 level.
