Dynamics and Determinants of Staphylococcus aureus Carriage in Infancy: the Generation R Study

Volume 46, no. 10, p. 3517-3521, 2008. We recently discovered that mistakes were made during the development of the database that was fundamental to the research we presented in the article identified above. Numerical mistakes were inadvertently included in Table Table1;1; also, the statistical analyses were performed with the wrong data. The numbers of individuals included in the gender data in Table Table11 were wrong. As a consequence, all of the data for the other parameters listed in that table were miscalculated. The corrected table, in which many of the values had to be changed, is given below.

TABLE 1.
Determinants of Staphylococcus aureus carriage in the first year of life

These mistakes also resulted in errors in Fig. Fig.1.1. The revised version of the figure is given below.

In addition, data in the text are corrected below according to the values given in the new version of Table Table11.

Statistical relevance remains as originally reported, although in some cases the exact data changed slightly. Note that some of the data relating to statistical significance in the text are corrected below according to the updated version of the table. Despite the errors presented in the published article, all of the conclusions presented in the paper, including the biological conclusions, still stand.
