Abstract

In the report "Vital Signs: Racial Disparities in Age-Specific Mortality Among Blacks or African Americans - United States, 1999-2015," on page 446, under "Results," the last sentence of the first paragraph should have read "Among adults aged ≥65 years, the death rate in 2015 relative to that in 1999 declined 27% for blacks and 17% for whites, resulting in a crossover in death rates after 2010, when blacks had lower age-specific death rates than whites."
