Tideman P, Taylor A, Janus E, et al. A comparison of Australian rural and metropolitan cardiovascular risk and mortality: the Greater Green Triangle and North West Adelaide Population Surveys. BMJ Open 2013;3:e003203. An error in the coding of one of the categorical variables used to calculate the Framingham five-year risk was detected following publication. The error does not affect the overall conclusions drawn in this paper but has changed figure 1A. The corrected figure 1A is below.
