Australia is continuing to make progress against cancer, but the regional and remote disadvantage remains

Correction

Incorrect footnote: In “Australia is continuing to make progress against cancer, but the regional and remote disadvantage remains” in the 4 November 2013 issue of the Journal (Med J Aust 2013; 199: 605-608), there was an error in Box 2 (page 607). There should be two separate footnotes for Box 2A and Box 2B: the footnote to Box 2A should state “Based on age- and sex-specific rates for metropolitan areas”, and the footnote to Box 2B should state “Based on age- and sex-specific rates for Australia for 1997–2000”.

There was also an error in the year groupings described in the Methods (page 605). This should read: “The expected number of deaths was obtained by applying the 5-year age- and sex-specific mortality rates for 1997–2000 to the corresponding age- and sex-specific populations for each subsequent year through to 2010.”
