In the published article, we fit all 1300 galaxies in the SQuIGGLE survey using the Prospector stellar population fitting code (Johnson et al. 2021). We reported logM M in Figure 9 and Table 2 as the total mass formed, the default mass unit used in Prospector. However, logM M values in the literature are typically reported as stellar mass surviving. Surviving stellar mass is smaller than total mass formed by 0.1-0.3 dex due to stellar mass loss throughout a galaxy s lifetime (e.g., Conroy 2013). Figure 1 shows an updated version of the logM M distribution of SQuIGGLE galaxies. Table 1 includes the ID numbers and stellar masses of all galaxies in the SQuIGGLE sample. The median logM M value decreases by 0.2 dex with this unit change from 1011.39Me to 1011.20Me.
