Data Misinterpretation

JAMA. 2018;320(8):840. doi:10.1001/jama.2018.11589

In the Editorial entitled “Digital Media and Symptoms of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorders in Adolescents”1 published in the July 17, 2018, issue of JAMA, data from the original article were misinterpreted. The last words in the last sentence of the third paragraph should have read, “this magnitude of increase is clinically significant on an individual and population scale.” The last sentence in the seventh paragraph should have read, “Future studies should include effect modification analyses examining whether associations between media use and ADHD symptoms are stronger in adolescents with poorer emotion regulation.” The Editorial was corrected online.
