Error in Table

Arch Gen Psychiatry. 1999;56(8):693. doi:10.1001/archpsyc.56.8.693

In the original article by Goodkin et al titled "A Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial of a Bereavement Support Group Intervention in Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1–Seropositive and –Seronegative Homosexual Men," published in the January issue of the ARCHIVES (1999;56:52-59), an error occurred in Table 1 on page 55. The "Unemployed, %" variable refers only to the previous week, and the entries should have read: "for the randomized sample, 12.2%; for the total efficacy sample, 12.1%; for the HIV-1–seropositive subsample, 12.4%; and for the HIV-1–seronegative subsample, 11.6%; P=.88." However, a more representative employment statistic would have been "Employed, full-time or part-time (past year), %." Therefore, the last row should have read as follows: "Employed (full-time or part-time, past year), %: for the randomized sample, 66.5%; for the total efficacy sample, 65.1%; for the HIV-1–seropositive subsample, 57.7%; and for the HIV-1–seronegative subsample, 75.4%; P≤.02." These corrected data support the statement made in the first footnote that the HIV-1–seropositive subsample was less frequently employed (as well as less well educated, less frequently European American, and younger).
