In this question about z scores, the numbers of patients given in the example study were incorrect (BMJ 2010;341:c6746, doi:10.1136/bmj.c6746). In the first paragraph, the second sentence should start: “A total of 644 children [not “511 children”] aged between 7 and 11 years . . .” Also, not all of these children were followed up at three years; the z scores for body mass index were calculated only for the 434 children who were.
