In the Original Investigation entitled “Temporal Trends in Mortality in the United States, 1969-2013” published in the October 27, 2015, issue of JAMA,1 an incorrect P value was reported for the “test on slope difference” for the 2013 death rates, which had leveled after a 2001-2010 decrease of 2.8%. It should have read “P = .006.” This article was corrected online.
