In the Original Investigation entitled “Global Mortality From Firearms, 1990-2016”1 published in the August 28, 2018, issue of JAMA, incorrect values were reported in 2 sections. The fourth sentence in the second paragraph of the Levels and Trends in Aggregate Firearm Injury Deaths section should have read, “Aggregate firearm injury death rates decreased between 1990 and 2016 in most countries; however, rates increased in 41 countries, of which 3 were significant changes (20 of these increases were in the GBD super region of Latin America and the Caribbean [data are reported alphabetically by country or territory]; Figure 1, Figure 2, Figure 3, Figure 4, Figure 5, Figure 6, Figure 7, Figure 8).” Additionally, the third sentence in the Patterns by Age and Sex section should have read, “Globally, among children aged 0 to 14 years, there were an estimated 7220 deaths (95% UI, 5690-8200) from a firearm-related injury in 2016, a rate of 0.4 deaths (95% UI, 0.3-0.4) per 100 000 persons, and there were 2.4 times more firearm deaths for boys than girls in this age group (eTable 12 and eTable 13 in the Supplement).” This article was corrected online.
