Correction to: longitudinal associations between built environment characteristics and changes in active commuting

Correction

Following the publication of this article, Yang et al., [1] it has been brought to our attention that there were errors in the abstract and in Tables 2 and 3. These errors occurred as previous versions of the tables were uploaded to the submission system in the process of revising the paper. These errors relate to the presentation of the results. The results reported in the text of the paper are correct and the conclusions are unaltered. We also noted an error in the abstract.

1. Error in Table 2

Table 2 reports the characteristics of a sample. The correct version of Table 2 is presented below.

Table 2 Descriptive characteristics of participants in the EPIC-Norfolk cohort included in the analyses

2. Error in Table 3

We also noted that the results presented in Table 3 are incorrect. The correct version of the table appears below and the results reported in the text match the results presented in this Table.

Table 3 Adjusted associations between neighbourhood and route environment characteristics and uptake and maintenance of active commuting

3. Error in the abstract

Those living in neighbourhoods with greater density of employment locations were more likely to maintain their active commuting.
