Errors in Statistical Results

JAMA Psychiatry. 2021;78(8):926. doi:10.1001/jamapsychiatry.2021.1374

The Original Investigation “Sustained Care Smoking Cessation Intervention for Individuals Hospitalized for Psychiatric Disorders: The Helping HAND 3 Randomized Clinical Trial,”1 published online May 5, 2021, contained errors in the statistical results. In the Sensitivity Analyses subsection, the adjusted odds ratio and 95% CI labeled “model 1,” 2.14 (95% CI, 1.11-4.11), should have been 2.22 (95% CI, 1.14-4.31). This error also appears in the Visual Abstract. Additionally, for the sensitivity analysis including unit as a covariate, the P value of .02 for the adjusted odds ratio 2.95 (95% CI, 1.26-6.91) should have instead been P = .01. Finally, in Table 2, in the section labeled “Missing equated to smoking,” the values for smoking biochemically verified or verified by a significant other were incorrect. The adjusted odds ratio was presented as 2.14 (95% CI, 1.11-4.11) but should have been 2.22 (95% CI, 1.14-4.31). The errors have been corrected online.
