Errors in X-Axis Labels in Figures 2 and 3

JAMA Cardiol. 2019;4(12):1301. doi:10.1001/jamacardio.2019.5358

In the Original Investigation entitled “Association of Cardiovascular Disease With Premature Mortality in the United States,”1 there were errors in the x-axis in Figures 2 and 3. The x-axis for Figure 2 should be “average annual percent change,” not “1-specificity, %.” The x-axis for panel A in Figure 3 should be “age-standardized mortality rate,” not “percentage,” and the x-axis for panel B in Figure 3 should be “average annual percent change,” not “percentage.” Additionally, in the first paragraph of the Discussion, “American Indians/Alaska Native individuals age 25 to 47 years” should be “age 25 to 49 years.” This article was corrected online.
