It is widely reported, based on clustering measurements of observed active galactic nucleus (AGN) samples, that AGNs reside in similar mass host dark matter haloes across the bulk of cosmic time, with log $\mathcal {M}/\mathcal {M}_{\odot }\sim 12.5\!-\!13.0$ to z ∼ 2.5. We show that this is due in part to the AGN fraction in galaxies rising with increasing stellar mass, combined with AGN observational selection effects that exacerbate this trend. Here, we use AGN specific accretion rate…
