Errors in Statistical Programming

JAMA Oncol. 2019;5(11):1643. doi:10.1001/jamaoncol.2019.4065

In the article titled “Population-Attributable Risk Proportion of Clinical Risk Factors for Breast Cancer,” published online February 2, 2017, and also in the September 2017 issue of JAMA Oncology,1 an error occurred in the statistical programming of the analysis. All analyses were recalculated, which resulted in changes to the population-attributable risk proportion estimates for some of the risk factors and combinations of risk factors,2 most of which did not alter the conclusions. This article was corrected online.
