Error in the Statistical Analysis Subsection of the Methods Section

JAMA Cardiol. 2020;5(5):613. doi:10.1001/jamacardio.2020.0720

In the Original Investigation titled “Population-Attributable Risk for Cardiovascular Disease Associated With Hypertension in Black Adults,”1 published online October 23, 2019, and in print December 18, 2019, in the Statistical Analysis subsection of the Methods section, the minus signs were missing from the formula for population-attributable risk. The formula should have been pe × (HR − 1)/(1 + pe × [HR − 1]). This article has been corrected online.
