Erratum to: Childhood maltreatment as a risk factor for diabetes: findings from a population-based survey of Canadian adults

Erratum

Upon publication of this article [1], it was brought to our attention that Fig. 1 contained an error under heading CSA, question “How many times did an adult: i) force you or attempt to force you into any unwanted sexual activity, by threatening you, holding you down or hurting you in some way?”.

Child maltreatment items and definitions

The thick frame in CSA should encompass not only the >10 bubble, but also the 3–5 and 6–10 bubbles, as shown in modified Fig. 1.

Figure 1 was updated in the original article.
