Error in 95% CI Limit

JAMA. 2018;320(8):840. doi:10.1001/jama.2018.12457

In the Research Letter entitled “Use of Death Counts From Vital Statistics to Calculate Excess Deaths in Puerto Rico Following Hurricane Maria,”1 published online August 2, 2018, there was an error in an upper limit of a 95% CI reported in the Results section and Table. The number (95% CI) of excess deaths in September 2017 should have been: 459 (95% CI, 425-493). This article was corrected online.
