Errors in Coauthors’ Names and Affiliation, Table Data, Figure Data, and Supplement

JAMA Oncol. 2020;6(3):444. doi:10.1001/jamaoncol.2020.0224

The Original Investigation titled “Global, Regional, and National Cancer Incidence, Mortality, Years of Life Lost, Years Lived With Disability, and Disability-Adjusted Life-Years for 29 Cancer Groups, 1990 to 2017: A Systemic Analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study,”1 published in the December 2019 issue of JAMA Oncology, contained errors in the coauthors’ names and an affiliation, Table data, Figure data, and the Supplement. The correct forms of 3 coauthors’ names are Senthilkumar Balakrishnan, PhD; Ashraf F. Nabhan, PhD; and Vahid Fallah Omrani, PhD. The correct affiliation for coauthor Morteza Jafarinia, MSc, is the Department of Immunology, School of Medicine, Isfahan University of Medical Sciences, Isfahan, Iran. In the Table, the correct age-standardized incidence rate for female patients with acute lymphoid leukemia is 1.2 (95% uncertainty interval, 0.9-1.4). In Figures 1 and 2, the key title has been changed to “Average annual percentage change, %” to more accurately reflect that the key represents a change in age-standardized incidence rate. Data in eTable 18 of the Supplement has also been updated. This article was corrected online.
