Correction

After the publication of ‘Cardiovascular Health in India – a Report Card from Three Urban and Rural Surveys of 22,144 Adults’ [1], the authors noted an error in Figure 3 of the paper.

They had inadvertently repeated the percentage of poor cardiac health in low, middle and high wealth index groups of smaller cities in the rural area. The correct percentage of poor cardiac health in low, middle, and high wealth index groups of rural areas are 24.0%, 28.8%, and 35.5% respectively (Ref: Figure 3).

Adjusted prevalence of good, moderate and poor cardiovascular health by asset index in Metropolitan cities, smaller cities, and rural areas
Figure 3 

Adjusted prevalence of good, moderate and poor cardiovascular health by asset index in Metropolitan cities, smaller cities, and rural areas.

Note: The bars show percentages.

* Adjusted for age, sex, and education.

In the original, incorrect figure, these percentages were listed as 36.9%, 47.0%, and 49.2%.
