Erratum

Unfortunately, after publication of this article [1], errors were noted in the second sentence of the Discussion. This sentence currently reads, “For both those with and without prior CVD in age group 45–64, major CVD incidence rates were around 50–75% higher, myocardial incidence around 250% higher and stroke incidence rates around 50–100% higher, among those of low SEP (no educational qualifications) compared to those of high SEP (university degree).” Instead, the sentence should read, “For both those with and without prior CVD in age group 45–64, major CVD incidence rates were around 50–75% higher, myocardial infarction incidence rates around 150% higher and stroke incidence rates around 50–100% higher, among those of low SEP (no educational qualifications) compared to those of high SEP (university degree).” The changes to the sentence are in boldface for clarity.
