Incorrect Values in a Table

JAMA Intern Med. 2016;176(8):1236. doi:10.1001/jamainternmed.2016.3981

In the Original Investigation entitled “Prospective Evaluation of the Association of Nut/Peanut Consumption With Total and Cause-Specific Mortality” published online March 2, 2015, and in the May 2015 print issue of JAMA Internal Medicine,1 incorrect values appeared in a table. In Table 1, the prevalences (reported as numbers [percentages]) of educational levels for European men of less than or equal to high school and high school/vocational school, which were given as 2064 (22.9%) and 583 (6.5%), respectively, should be replaced with 1917 (21.3%) and 3080 (34.3%), respectively. In addition, prevalences of European men with educational levels of some or completed college and greater than college (no values previously) should be given as 2915 (32.4%) and 1077 (12.0%), respectively. The low, lower middle, middle, and upper middle incomes for European men, given as 1917 (21.3%), 3080 (34.3%), 2915 (32.4%), and 1077 (12.0%), respectively, should be replaced with 3542 (39.9%), 1510 (17.0%), 1558 (17.6%), and 1509 (17.0%), respectively. In addition, the high income for European men (no value previously) should be given as 747 (8.4%). In the same table, the prevalence of antidiabetes medication for Asian women, given as 842 (1.1%), should be replaced with NA (not applicable). Finally, the prevalences of the metabolic condition among European men and women and Asian men and women, given as 5746 (64.5%), 10 185 (71.4%), 5746 (64.5%), and 10 185 (71.4%), respectively, should be replaced with 6545 (72.9%), 11 081 (77.1%), 21 777 (35.6%), and 22 119 (30.2%), respectively. This article was corrected online.
