Error in Data

JAMA Oncol. 2015;1(9):1224. doi:10.1001/jamaoncol.2015.5120

There was an error in the Results section of the article recently published by Cumberbatch et al.1 In the subsection BC Mortality and Occupation, the first sentences should read “Sufficient data were present to calculate DSM for 40 occupational classes. Of these, 16 of 40 (43%) and 2 of 40 (5%) occupations had significantly elevated or reduced risks of death from BC, respectively” (“17 of 40” is changed to “16 of 40”). The article has been corrected online.
