In the original investigation by Jacobsen et al titled "Increase in Weight in All Birth Cohorts in a General Population," published in the February 12 issue of the ARCHIVES (2001;161:466-472), an error occurred in the "Comment" section on page 469. The fifth sentence in the second paragraph should have read: "The cross-sectional and longitudinal results are compatible in that younger men have a larger increase in BMIs than older men." Also, on page 472 the reference number in the fifth sentence of the second paragraph should have been 13 (Midthjell et al) and not 11 (Jacobsen and Thelle).
