Sonia Saxena and colleagues would like to clarify how the data were collected for their study, as editing may have resulted in readers thinking that the authors were responsible for the data collection (BMJ 2002;325: 520-3). The health survey for England was in fact conducted by the Joint Health Surveys Unit at University College London and the National Centre for Social Research. The authors used data supplied by the Essex data archive for their analysis. The first part of reference 11 was also incorrect; the full reference should read: Office for National Statistics. Health survey for England: the health of minority ethnic groups '99. London: Stationery Office, 1999.
