Incorrect revenue amount: In “Cost-effectiveness of volumetric alcohol taxation in Australia” in the 19 April 2010 issue of the Journal (Med J Aust 2010; 192: 439-443), there was an error in the taxation revenue amount specified in the Abstract and Results section. In the Abstract (fourth sentence of Results paragraph), the wording should be “a tax on all alcohol at a spirits rate would reduce consumption by 23.85% and increase revenue by $3094 million”. In the text of the article (first paragraph of Results section), the wording should be “A volumetric tax set equal to the current spirits tax rate provided a substantially greater reduction (23.85%) in consumption of alcohol and an increase in taxation revenue of $3094 million”.
