Incorrect Terminology. In the article titled “Effectiveness of Child Safety Seats vs Seat Belts in Reducing Risk for Death in Children in Passenger Vehicle Crashes,” by Elliott et al published in the June issue of the ARCHIVES (2006;160:617-621) the term tow-away was incorrectly changed to the term two-way. Thus, on page 617, in the “Participants” subsection of the “Abstract,” the sentence should have read as follows: “Children in tow-away crashes occurring between 1998 and 2003.” The same error occurred on page 621, left-hand column, lines 1 and 2. These should have read “ . . . of the NASS CDS to obtain a representative sample of the full tow-away crash population may suffer from confounding. . . . ” Further down on the same page and in the same column, the last sentence of that paragraph should have read as follows: “The restriction of NASS CDS to tow-away crashes and use of adjustment factors such as vehicle type, model year, age of driver, and, especially, survival status of the driver should reduce this confounding.”
