Errors in Abstract, Text, and Table. In the Original Investigation titled “Burden of Dizziness and Vertigo in the Community” by Neuhauser et al, published in the October 27 issue of the Archives (2008;168[19]:2118-2124), errors occurred in the abstract on page 2118, in the text on page 2122, and in Table 3 on page 2122. In the abstract, the second and third sentences of the “Results” section should have read as follows: “For vestibular vertigo, the prevalence was 4.9% and the incidence was 1.4%. We also found that 1.8% of unselected adults consulted a physician in the last 12 months for incident dizziness/vertigo (0.9% for vestibular vertigo).” On page 2122, in the right-hand column, second paragraph, the second sentence should have read as follows: “Based on diagnostic criteria that have been adapted to an interview situation through piloting and validation and that intentionally emphasize specificity rather than sensitivity, we conservatively estimated that in participants with vestibular vertigo 33% had benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (8% of all participants with dizziness).9” Also on page 2122, in Table 3, the sixth entry in the first column should have read “Duration of attacks.” The journal regrets these errors.
