This Research paper contains an error in the second paragraph of the discussion section (BMJ 2015;351:h6424, doi:10.1136/bmj.h6424). When citing reference 6, the authors erroneously state in the penultimate sentence that “this study did not account for age at election,” when, in fact, Link and colleagues controlled for age at election in all their analyses.
