In the Original Contribution entitled "Ethnic Disparities in Diabetic Complications in an Insured Population" published in the May 15, 2002, issue of THE JOURNAL (2002;287:2519-2527), there were incorrect data in the Figure. The correct hazard ratio for congestive heart failure for blacks is 1.15 (95% confidence interval, 0.98-1.34). This figure replaces the one on page 2523 of the printed journal (Figure 1).

Figure. Ethnicity From Cox Proportional Hazard Models
Graphic Jump Location
Hazard ratios and 95% confidence intervals (error bars) are shown for ethnicity (reference, whites) from Cox proportional hazard models of myocardial infarction, stroke, congestive heart failure, end-stage renal disease (fatal or nonfatal), and nontraumatic lower extremity amputation. The base model is adjusted for age and sex (open circle). The fully adjusted model includes ethnicity, age, sex, individual-level educational attainment, census block group-level annual income and proportion of neighborhood with working-class occupations, smoking status, alcohol intake, frequency of self-monitoring of blood glucose levels, exercise reported as a treatment for diabetes, obesity status based on body mass index according to the current22 classification of overweight and obesity, first-degree family history of diabetes, duration of diabetes (ie, time since diagnosis, type of diabetes, diabetes therapy), and height (for amputation only).
