Retraction: Governance and Taxes: Evidence from Regression Discontinuity

By Andrew Bird and Stephen A. Karolyi

The authors acknowledged that the published version of their article misstates the use of CRSP-based index membership in the main specifications and Russell-based index membership data as a robustness test. The article asserts that the two index membership definitions do not produce quantitatively different estimates. However, the authors were unable to provide the original data and code requested by the publisher that reproduce the findings, as shown in the article’s tables, supporting this assertion. Accordingly, the article has been retracted. See the full retraction here.

Accounting Horizons announces a forthcoming Conference on “Data Analytics in Accounting” at Baruch College—CUNY, New York City. Data analytics is changing the accounting profession, accounting education, and accounting research. With data surrounding us, accountants are increasingly expected to add value to their company and to their clients through data analytics. However, to date we know very little about the impact of data analytics on auditing, financial and managerial accounting. The purpose of this special Accounting Horizons conference is to improve our understanding of these issues. View the full Call for Papers here.
