Errors in Abstract and Figure 2A

JAMA Intern Med. Published online March 2, 2020. doi:10.1001/jamainternmed.2020.0222

In the Original Investigation titled “Association Between Automotive Assembly Plant Closures and Opioid Overdose Mortality in the United States: A Difference-in-Differences Analysis”1 published in the February 2020 issue, the fourth sentence of the Results paragraph of the abstract should have read as follows: “Five years after a plant closure, mortality rates had increased by 8.6 opioid overdose deaths per 100 000 individuals (95% CI, 2.6-14.6; P = .006) in exposed counties compared with unexposed counties, an 85% higher increase relative to the mortality rate that would have been expected had exposed counties followed the same outcome trends as unexposed counties.” Also, the y-axis label for Figure 2A should have read “Unadjusted Mortality Rate per 100 000, %.” This article was corrected online.
