In the Original Investigation entitled “International Prevalence of Indoor Tanning: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis” published in the April 2014 issue of JAMA Dermatol (2014;150[4]:390-400. doi:10.1001/jamadermatol.2013.6896), incorrect information appeared. In the Results section Population Proportional Attributable Risk, the second and third sentences should have read: “The population proportional attributable risk for the 3 regions ranged from 3.0% to 10.8% for basal cell carcinoma, from 6.7% to 21.8% for squamous cell carcinoma, and from 2.6% to 9.4% for melanoma, corresponding to 419 245 cases of skin cancer in the United States, 26 484 in Northern and Western Europe, and 18 441 in Australia. Overall, we estimate 452 796 cases of basal and squamous cell carcinoma (NMSC) and 11 374 cases of melanoma each year attributable to indoor tanning.” In Table 2, the Total skin cancer cases for Cases Attributable to Ever Exposure under the heading of United States should have appeared as 419 245 (327 997 - 504 914) and under the heading of Northern and Western Europe should have appeared as 26 484 (19 231 - 33 195).This article was corrected online.
