        The editorial office has been notified of the following errors. The second column heading in Table 1 should be “Others” (not “Movers to Higher NDI”). The unweighted sample size (n) in this column should be “1,572” (not “263”). The third column heading should be “Movers to higher NDI” (not “Others”). The unweighted sample size (n) in this column should be “263” (not “1,572”). There are no other errors with the data in the table, and statistical associations and analysis are unaffected by this error. A corrected table appears below.The authors apologize for any confusion this has caused.

        • Change in Neighborhood Socioeconomic Status and Weight Gain: Dallas Heart Study
          American Journal of Preventive MedicineVol. 49Issue 1
          • Preview
            Despite a proposed connection between neighborhood environment and obesity, few longitudinal studies have examined the relationship between change in neighborhood socioeconomic deprivation, as defined by moving between neighborhoods, and change in body weight. The purpose of this study is to examine the longitudinal relationship between moving to more socioeconomically deprived neighborhoods and weight gain as a cardiovascular risk factor.
