We revisit the problem of local persistence in directed percolation, reporting improved estimates of the persistence exponent in 1 + 1 dimensions, discovering strong corrections to scaling in higher dimensions, and investigating the mean field limit. Moreover, we examine a graded persistence probability that a site does not flip more than m times and demonstrate how local persistence can be studied in seed simulations. Finally, the problem of spatial (as opposed to temporal) persistence is investigated.
