An error occurred in the Original Contribution entitled "Functional Status and Well-being of Patients With Chronic Conditions," published in the August 18 issue of The Journal (1989;262:907-913). On page 910, the third sentence in the first paragraph in column 1 Should have read as follows: "(When we adjusted the mean scores for the general-population sample to reflect sociodemographic characteristics of the patient sample, differences [not 'differencesthout chronic conditions (P<.01) for physical functioning, role functioning, and health perceptions.'] in predicted scores were so minor that we decided that no adjustments were necessary.) As hypothesized, using an independent groups t test of differences, mean health scores were better for the general population than for patients without chronic conditions (P<.01) for physical functioning, role functioning, and health perceptions."
