An error occurred in the ORIGINAL CONTRIBUTION "Cross-sectional Study of a Community With Exceptional Exposure to DDT," published in the May 15 issue of The Journal (1981; 245:1926-1930). On page 1928, column 3, the third sentence under "Modulators of DDT Levels" should have read as follows: Cigarette smoking, controlled for age, race, sex, and fish and alcohol consumption, had a slightly negative [not 'positive'] correlation with log DDT levels.
