Errata: Vol. 60, No. 30
In the report, "Notes from the Field: Malnutrition and Mortality—Southern Somalia, July 2011," irregularities in data quality were found on further examination of two of the 15 survey datasets and in the under-5 mortality data. Consequently, anthropometric and mortality estimates from the Bakool Agropastoral and pastoral surveys and estimates of under-5 mortality rates from all survey areas should be disregarded. This does not change the broader conclusion that a severe nutrition crisis with high mortality exists in most of the areas assessed, and famine conditions are present in at least two areas surveyed. It also highlights the challenges of analyzing data collected remotely from insecure regions.
