An error occurred in the ORIGINAL CONTRIBUTION entitled "Vaginal Atrophy in the Postmenopausal Woman: The Importance of Sexual Activity and Hormones," published in the April 22/29 issue of The Journal (1983; 249:2195-2198). On page 2197, the P value in the first sentence of the "Gynecologic Status of Active v Inactive Women" section should have been P=.044 (not P=.004). On that same page, the footnote in Table 4 should have read as follows: "*One-tailed Mann-Whitney U tests were performed on all variables."
