“a lack of” vs. “lack of”
What is the difference?
I think 'a lack' is usually used when there is an adjective preceding 'lack', eg, 'there is a huge lack of support for the proposed change in policy.'
But if it's just 'lack of' then it stays that way without the article.

not much. see my last comment on your previous post: in cases like these, it's a matter of aesthetic preference.
