Typographical error in base number for calculation of estimates: In “Counting the cost: estimating the number of deaths among recently released prisoners in Australia” in the 18 July 2011 issue of the Journal (Med J Aust 2011; 195: 64-68), the incorrect number 50 504 was used as a basis for calculating some estimates instead of the correct number, 50 405. This has resulted in small errors in some numbers in two tables and one paragraph of the Results in the article. These errors are not substantive and do not alter the conclusions of the study. The numbers have been corrected in the online version of this report (http://www.mja.com.au/public/issues/195_02_180711/kin10879_fm.html).
