In the report, “Declines in Student Obesity Prevalence Associated with a Prevention Initiative — King County, Washington, 2012,” the following errors occurred.

On page 155, a portion of the second sentence of the fourth paragraph should have read, “. . . the odds of a student being obese in 2012 being 8% less than in 2004 (odds ratio [OR] = 0.92; 95% confidence interval [CI] = 0.86–0.99).”

On page 156, the sixth sentence of the first paragraph should have read, “Comparing CPPW and non-CPPW students, the 2010 to 2012 change in obesity was not significantly different (p = 0.4 for interaction term).” The seventh sentence should have read, “Before the CPPW intervention in 2010, obesity prevalence was stable in both the CPPW and non-CPPW districts.”

Also on page 156, in Figure 2 and Table 2, the values for obesity prevalence in non-CPPW school districts for the years 2004, 2006, and 2012 should have been presented as 7.2 (CI = 6.5–7.9), 7.0 (CI = 6.2–7.8), and 5.7 (CI = 5.0–6.5), respectively.
