Error in Tables. In the Original Investigation titled “Hyperthyroidism and Risk of Atrial Fibrillation or Flutter: A Population-Based Study” by Frost et al published in the August 9/23 issue of the ARCHIVES (2004;164:1675-1678), there were errors in the tables. The errors do not change any major conclusions of the study.

The section in Table 1 (“Demographic and Clinical Characteristics of 40 628 Patients Diagnosed in Danish Hospitals as Having Hyperthyroidism [January 1, 1980–December 31, 1999]”) published with incorrect data is reprinted here as a tabulation with the correct data.

The section in Table 2 (“Frequency Distribution of 3362 Patients With Atrial Fibrillation Among 40 628 Patients With Hyperthyroidism in Denmark [January 1, 1980–December 31, 1999]”) published with incorrect data is reprinted here as a tabulation with the correct data.

Table 3 is reprinted here with the correct data.
