In the original article, there was a mistake in the legends for the colors of the parties in Figures 2, 3 as published. The entries for the “Pirates” and the “Alternative for Germany” were interchanged. The figures with the corrected legends appear below.


Figure 2. Projection on the 2-days political space with the economic and cultural axis spanned by the difference between the economic and cultural left and right categories, respectively (see Table 5) of the German parties between 1998 and 2017.
