Incorrect Data in Text

JAMA Intern Med. 2020;180(4):618. doi:10.1001/jamainternmed.2020.0124

In the Editorial entitled “Statins for Primary Prevention: The Debate Is Intense, But the Data Are Weak”1 published in the January 2017 issue of JAMA Internal Medicine, incorrect data were reported in the text. In the first sentence of the second paragraph on the first page, the absolute benefit for use of statins should have been reported as 0.20%, rather than 0.43%, for cardiovascular mortality. This article was corrected online.
