In the article “Heart Disease and Stroke Statistics—2006 Update: A Report From the American Heart Association Statistics Committee and Stroke Statistics Subcommittee,” by Thomas Thom et al, which published online before print on January 11, 2006, and appeared in the February 14, 2006, issue of Circulation (Circulation. 2006;113:e85–e151), the following items require correction:
In the third footnote of Table 5A on page e109, the text “NHANES (1999–2002), Fields et al,145 and NHLBI; data are age-adjusted for age 20 and older” should be replaced by “Numbers of persons are from NHANES (1999–00), Fields et al145; age-adjusted rates for age 20 and older were computed by NHLBI from NHANES 1999–2002,” to read: “Sources: Prevalence: Numbers of persons are from NHANES (1999–00), Fields et al145; age-adjusted rates for age 20 and older were computed by NHLBI from NHANES 1999–2002. Estimates from NHANES 1999–2002 applied to 2003 population estimates. **NHIS (2003), CDC/NCHS; data are estimates for Americans age 18 and older. Mortality: CDC/NCHS; these data represent underlying cause of death only; data for white and black males and females include Hispanics. Hospital discharges: National Hospital Discharge Survey, CDC/NCHS; data include people discharged alive and dead. Cost: NHLBI; data include estimated direct and indirect costs for 2006.”
In the first footnote of Table 9G on page e129, “100” should be replaced by “110,” to read: “Note: Undiagnosed diabetes is defined here for those whose fasting glucose is 126 mg/dL or higher but who did not report being told they had diabetes by a health care provider. Pre-diabetes is a fasting blood glucose of 110 to less than 126 mg/dL (impaired fasting glucose). Pre-diabetes also includes impaired glucose tolerance.”
In addition, Table 13B contained several errors that were corrected in a previous erratum (Circulation. 2006;113:696). All of these errors have been corrected in the current online version of the article.
