Incorrect Data in Text

JAMA. 2020;323(7):669. doi:10.1001/jama.2020.0180

In the US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) Recommendation Statement entitled “Statin Use for the Primary Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease in Adults: US Preventive Services Task Force Recommendation Statement”1 published in the November 15, 2016, issue of JAMA, incorrect data were reported in the text. In the first paragraph of the “Statin Use in Adults Aged 40 to 75 Years” subsection and in the third paragraph of the “Benefits of Statin Use” subsection, the text “RR, 0.69 [95% CI, 0.54-0.88]” should have read “RR, 0.82 [95% CI, 0.71-0.94].” The certainty, magnitude of net benefit, and grades of the USPSTF recommendation remain the same. This article was corrected online.
