The authors have advised that the statistical analysis script incorrectly labelled patients receiving ICS/LABA-combination inhalers as only receiving LABA. The error has resulted in an incorrect prevalence of ICS treatment in Table 1 on page 583 (7% instead of the correct 55%) as well as some changes in regression covariable estimates in Table 2 on page 584. The correct Tables 1 and 2 are shown in Download Article.

Page 579, Abstract, Results section, the text “When stratifying for moderate and severe exacerbations in a sub-analysis in the same model, statin use did not have an increased HR for exacerbation of either severity (HR = 1.02 (95% CI 0.85 to 1.24; p = 0.811) and HR = 1.07 (95% CI 0.89 to 1.29; p = 0.492) respectively)” should read “When stratifying for moderate and severe exacerbations in a sub-analysis in the same model, statin use did not have an increased HR for exacerbation of either severity (HR = 1.02 (95% CI 0.85 to 1.23; p = 0.812) and HR = 1.07 (95% CI 0.89 to 1.29; p = 0.457) respectively)”.

Page 584, right column, second paragraph, the text “When stratifying for moderate and severe exacerbations in a sub-analysis in the same model, statin use was not to reduced time to AECOPD for either severity (HR = 1.02 (95% CI 0.85 to 1.24; p = 0.811) and HR = 1.07 (95% CI 0.89 to 1.29; p = 0.492) respectively)” should read “When stratifying for moderate and severe exacerbations in a sub-analysis in the same model, statin use was not to reduced time to AECOPD for either severity (HR = 1.02 (95% CI 0.85 to 1.23; p = 0.812) and HR = 1.07 (95% CI 0.89 to 1.29; p = 0.457) respectively)”.

The authors apologize for the error and advise the prevalence and regression analyses does not change the conclusions of the paper nor does it affect the presented main outcomes of the study.
