The Sloan Digital Sky Survey can be used to detect and characterize red and reddened quasars. In Richards et al. (2003), we showed that 6% of SDSS quasars have red colors consistent with significant dust reddening by an extinction curve similar to that of the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC). We estimate that a further 10% of the luminous quasar population is… (More)
