Error in Text and Table Footnote

JAMA Intern Med. 2017;177(11):1703. doi:10.1001/jamainternmed.2017.6758

In the Original Investigation titled “Association of Thyroid Function With Life Expectancy With and Without Cardiovascular Disease: The Rotterdam Study,”1 published online September 18, 2017, the words “with CVD” and “without CVD” in the last sentence of the second paragraph of the Results were reversed. The sentence should read as follows: “Compared with the lowest tertile, the highest thyrotropin tertile was associated with a lower risk of mortality among participants without CVD (HR, 0.76; 95% CI, 0.64-0.91) and with CVD (HR, 0.82; 95% CI, 0.67-1.01) (Table 2).” Also, a covariate was omitted in Table 2, footnote a. The footnote should read “Adjustment: age, sex, and cohort.” This article was corrected online.
