Page 714, paragraph 3

“Except in four cities (Budapest, Stockholm, Tel Aviv and Teplice) the adjusted estimates are close to the shrunken ones.”

Should instead read:

“Except in four cities (Athens, Geneva, Stockholm, and Torino), the adjusted estimates are close to the shrunken ones.”

Page 714, paragraph 4

“The calculated number of deaths using the shrunken estimates and those adjusted for temperature and NO2 ranged from respectively 1/6 and 1/15 in Erfurt and in Stockholm to more than double in Rome, the one using the overall RR estimate.”

Should instead read:

“The calculated number of deaths using the shrunken estimates and those adjusted for temperature and NO2 ranged from 1/10 and 1/15 in Helsinki and in Stockholm, respectively, to close to double in Rome, the one using the overall RR estimate.”

“When we sum the attributable risks across all locations, the expected numbers of deaths using the shrunken estimate or the meta-regression estimate are respectively 25% less or 11% larger than the one estimated using the overall pooled estimate in each city.”

Should instead read:

“When we sum the attributable risks across all locations, the expected numbers of deaths using the shrunken estimate or the meta-regression estimate are respectively 6% or 11% larger than the one estimated using the overall pooled estimate in each city.”

Page 716, paragraph 2

“Applying a shrunken estimate in Rome or in Erfurt would lead to almost 80% more deaths or 400% less death respectively than those calculated with the overall estimate. The heterogeneity observed in these cities is not in favor of applying a single estimate. Neither does it militate for applying the city specific estimate, as that estimation would also lead to over or underestimating the shrunken estimates by 176 and 613% respectively.”

Should instead read:

“Applying a shrunken estimate in Rome or in Helsinki would lead to almost 70% more deaths or 90% less death, respectively, than those calculated with the overall estimate. The heterogeneity observed in these cities is not in favor of applying a single estimate. Neither does it militate for applying the city-specific estimate, as that estimation would also lead to over- or underestimating the shrunken estimates by 25 and 20%, respectively.”
