In the Editorial entitled “Race, Ethnicity, and the Diagnosis of Breast Cancer” published in the January 13, 2015, issue of JAMA (2015;313[2]:141-142. doi:10.1001/jama.2014.17323), data and wording were discordant with the related article. In the middle of the second paragraph, the 7-year mortality rates were updated to reflect the actuarial data in the article by Iqbal et al. The last sentence of the second paragraph was updated to reflect that the mortality difference was statistically significant after adjustment and exclusion of patients with triple-negative cancer. Wording was also modified in paragraphs 3 and 5 to align with the related article. This article was corrected online.
