Incorrect Language and Data in: Depression and Risk of Stroke Morbidity and Mortality: A Meta-analysis and Systematic Review

JAMA. 2011;306(23):2565. doi:10.1001/jama.2011.1845

Incorrect Language and Data: In the Original Contribution entitled “Depression and Risk of Stroke Morbidity and Mortality: A Meta-analysis and Systematic Review” published in the September 21, 2011, issue of JAMA (2011;306[11]:1241-1249), incorrect language was used and incorrect data appeared in eTable 3. In the first paragraph under “Stratified and Sensitivity Analyses,” the second sentence should have read “using clinical diagnosis to define depression, with a low study quality (less than the median score), featuring younger participants (mean age <65 years), having a relatively small study sample (n<5000), among Asian studies, and lack of statistical control for BMI or smoking status.” In eTable 3, the data for “≤10” years of mean follow-up should have read “21” for the No. of reportsa, “1.43 (1.23-1.66)” for the HR (95% CI), “72.2” for the Q-Statistic, and “72.3” for the I2 value. The data for “10” years of mean follow-up should have read “10” for the No. of reportsa, “1.49 (1.26-1.77)” for the HR (95% CI), “14.4” for the Q-Statistic, “.11” for the P value for heterogeneity, “37.5” for the I2 value, and “.21” for the P value between groups.
