Abstract

The authors would like to correct the second line of the results section of the abstract on page 100, which reads: “The average annual mortality rate was 0.02 per 105 people, and the standardized mortality ratio was 3.1 per 105 people.” It should read: “The average annual mortality rate was 0.02 per 105 people, and the standardized mortality ratio was 3.1.” On page 102, the fourth line of the mortality section reads: “The SMR was 3.1 per 105 people and the SMR of female (3.8 per 105) was higher than that of male (1.8 per 105)”, when it should read: “The SMR was 3.1 and the SMR of female (3.8) was higher than that of male (1.8).” Because the SMR is a ratio, it requires no base population and therefore the base population number (per 105) should be deleted. The authors would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.
