In the article by Becher et al (Becher H, Palm F, Aigner A, Safer A, Urbanek C, Buggle F, Grond-Ginsbach C, Grau AJ. Socioeconomic conditions in childhood, adolescence and adulthood and the risk of ischemic stroke. Stroke. 2016;47:173–179. DOI: 10.1161/STROKEAHA.115.011523.), which published online on November 24, 2015, and appeared in the January 2016 issue of the journal, a correction was needed.
On page 178, Table 4, the authors discovered a programming error in the models presented. This table referred to stroke subgroups. The corrected table is given below. While the text related to Table 4 (page 177, top right column) and the overall interpretation remained correct, the updated odds ratios are by tendency somewhat higher. The authors regret the error.
This correction has been made to the online version of the article, which is available at http://stroke.ahajournals.org/content/47/1/173.
