Incorrect Data and Presentation in Abstract and Figures

JAMA. Published online March 10, 2020. doi:10.1001/jama.2020.3544

In the US Preventive Services Task Force Evidence Report titled “Screening for Hepatitis C Virus Infection in Adolescents and Adults: Updated Evidence Report and Systematic Review for the US Preventive Services Task Force”1 published online in JAMA on March 2, 2020, data and presentation were incorrect in the abstract and figures. In the abstract Conclusions, the value reported as 5% should have been reported as 95%. In Figure 1, the blue circle indicating key question 3 should have been presented on the first horizontal line at the left of the figure, just before the branch. In Figure 3, several percentages in the “Women” column were incorrect. This article was corrected online.
