Error in Reported Odds Ratios

JAMA Intern Med. 2016;176(10):1579. doi:10.1001/jamainternmed.2016.5103

In the Research Letter “Differences in Prostate-Specific Antigen Testing Among Urologists and Primary Care Physicians Following the 2012 USPSTF Recommendations,”1 published in the April 2016 issue of JAMA Internal Medicine, there were statistical errors reported in the original article (odds ratios and associated confidence intervals and P values). These errors affected the numbers reported in the text and figure but did not affect the primary conclusions of the study. The article was corrected online.
