In the Original Contribution entitled "Trends in Antimicrobial Drug
Prescribing Among Office-Based Physicians in the United States," published
in the January 18, 1995, issue of THE JOURNAL (1995;273:214-219), errors occurred
in the reporting of P values. In Table 3, the P value for age younger than 15 years should
be .04; in Table 4, the P value for cephalosporins
(for blacks) should be .03. Other published P values
changed somewhat in recalculations, but did not affect statistical significance.
Exact P values not provided here are available on
request from the authors.
