In Reply We thank Dr Tobe for the interest in our article.1 Dr Tobe stated that our study was not population based, and the results may not be generalizable to the overall US population. In our study, we defined the study population as the entire birth cohort from 1998 born at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. The word “population” was not intended to imply the entirety of any state or nation, but the entire patient pool that met inclusion criteria for the present study.
