Error in table note defining a positive screen. The article “Screening for Depression” (January 15, 2012, p. 139) contained an error in the note in the legend of Table 5 (p. 142). The note incorrectly indicated that a “yes” response to at least two questions is considered positive for depression. The note should have read as follows: “A ‘no’ response to question 1, or a ‘yes’ response to questions 2 through 5 each counts as one point. A score of two or more points is considered a positive screen.” The table has been corrected online and is reprinted here.
