Incorrect Percentages in a Table

JAMA Surg. 2019;154(3):272. doi:10.1001/jamasurg.2019.0348

In the Original Investigation titled “Racial Differences in Time to Breast Cancer Surgery and Overall Survival in the US Military Health System,” published online January 23 in JAMA Surgery,1 zeroes were missing from the singles-digit position in 8 percentages among the data for non-Hispanic black participants in Table 1. The affected numbers (percentages) should have appeared as follows: north TRICARE region, 400 (40.5%); west TRICARE region, 204 (20.7%); breast cancer diagnosis in 1998, 99 (10.0%), in 2002, 105 (10.6%), and in 2007, 101 (10.2%); GX (undetermined) tumor grade, 100 (10.1%); ER+/PR+ hormone receptor status, 397 (40.2%), and ER+/PR hormone receptor status, 107 (10.8%). This article was corrected online.
