Error and Omission in Text

Arch Pediatr Adolesc Med. 1999;153(9):945. doi:10.1001/archpedi.153.9.945

In the article by Strauss titled "Self-reported Weight Status and Dieting in a Cross-sectional Sample of Young Adolescents: National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey III," published in the July issue of the ARCHIVES (1999;153:741-747), an error and an omission appeared in the text. On page 742, in the "Sample" subsection of the "Subjects and Methods" section, the fourth sentence should have read as follows: "Of the children enrolled, 1097 (56.8%) were white, 743 (38.5%) were black, and 92 (4.8%) were other." Also, on that same page in the "Statistics" subsection of the "Subjects and Methods" section, a new sentence should have been inserted after the second sentence and read as follows: "Whites and Hispanics were grouped together because of sample size limitations and herein are identified as ‘white.'"
