Correction

After the publication of this work [1], we became aware that Table 5 (Table 1) incorrectly duplicated the information in Table 6. We have corrected this error and have inserted the correct Table 5 (Table 1) below.
Table 5

Frequency, age-adjusted risk and risk ratio of the occurrence of lung cancer, identified by death records, between baseline and 31 December 2005 by number of categories of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and smoking status among 16,901 adults

ACEs, adverse childhood experiences RR, risk ratio CI, confidence interval

* Underlying cause of death from lung cancer defined by ICD-9 code 162 for deaths between 1995-1998; ICD-10 code C34 for deaths between 1999 and 2005.

** Rate (per 100,000 person-years) age-standardized to the 2000 Census population for California.

Model A adjusted for age, sex, race/ethnicity, education, married, financial problems

Model B adjusted for age, sex, race/ethnicity, education, married, financial problems, smoking status, parental smoking history. In addition to the RR estimates for ACE score, we show the RR estimates for smoking status from the regression model.

We regret any inconvenience that this oversight may have caused.
