In redrawing figure 1 in this article by Martin McKee and Vladimir Shkolnikov (3 November, pp 1051-5) we unfortunately mislabelled the y axis, and the error was not noticed before publication. This led to male life expectancy in Europe being represented at a severely reduced level. The range on the y axis should start at 60 [not zero] and should therefore read “60, 65, 70, 75, 80” years.
