Mutto M, Lett R, Lawoko S, et al. Intentional Injuries among Ugandan Youth: a trauma registry analysis. Inj Prev 2010;16:333–6. doi:10.1136/ip.2008.020495.

  • The 2002 spatial distribution of Uganda's population as appears in the October 2010 issue (at the end of the Settings part in the Methods section on page 2 of 4) is incorrect. The correct proportions should be: 32.2% in central, 30.2% in eastern, 15.6% in northern and 22.0% in western regions.

  • Absolute prevalence difference between males and females should be 34.6% and not 70.6% as appears in the publication (line 7 of the Discussion section).

  • Intentional injuries among youth constitute 7.2% of total injury burden in the five regions, not one fifth of injury burden as indicated in the Discussion section.

The journal apologises for these errors.
