At the proof stage of this paper by Deborah Lehmann and colleagues, we added some new data to the Results section that we had requested from the author, but in doing so, we unfortunately reversed the order of two sets of numbers (23 August, pp 415-9). In the second sentence of the second paragraph of the section headed “Middle ear disease,” the proportion of children with tympanic membrane perforations in community A gradually declined to 13% (4/31) [not 8/44] and in community B declined to 18% (8/44) [not 4/31].
