Counting the costs of children's smoking

Four editorial errors occurred in the figures and table in this article by Jonathan Foulds and Christine Godfrey (28 October, p 1152). The legend to figure 1 should read “Percentage of English boys and girls ages 11-15 who smoke cigarettes regularly”; the legend to figure 2 should read “Percentage of English school children who smoke cigarettes regularly, by age.” In the table the numbers in column 3 (No of children aged 11-15) are in thousands, giving a total of 3649000 children aged 11-15 in the United Kingdom; the numbers in column 4 (total cigarette consumption by children) are in millions, giving a total cigarette consumption by 11-15 year olds in 1994 of 1154000000.
