Missing Source Credit for Figure and Table

JAMA Oncol. Published online June 8, 2017. doi:10.1001/jamaoncol.2017.1915

In the Brief Report titled “Characterizing 18 Years of the Death With Dignity Act in Oregon,”1 published online in JAMA Oncology on April 6, 2017, the source for the data reported in the Figure and Table was omitted. The source is the Oregon Health Authority, which is noted in the Abstract and Methods section of the article and is listed as reference 3 in the article. The Figure was reproduced from Figure 1 in reference 3. In addition, reference 3 had an incorrect title and incomplete source information, but the URL was correct. It should read, “Oregon Health Authority, Oregon Public Health Division. Oregon Death With Dignity Act: 2015 Data Summary. February 4, 2016. https://public.health.oregon.gov/ProviderPartnerResources/EvaluationResearch/DeathwithDignityAct/Documents/year18.pdf. Accessed Sept 14, 2016. The article has been corrected online to add footnotes explaining the source for data in the Figure and the Table. This article was previously corrected for an error in patient data in the abstract and text on May 4, 2017.2
