In the Original Investigation titled “Dialysis Initiation and Mortality Among Older Veterans With Kidney Failure Treated in Medicare vs the Department of Veterans Affairs,”1 published online April 9, 2018, and in the May print edition of JAMA Internal Medicine, the values listed in the Race category of column 5 were in error. The values in No. (%) for White, Black, Other, and Missing should have been 2490 (84.0), 259 (8.7), 188 (6.3), and 29 (1.0), respectively. The article has been corrected online.
