Readers should note the following two typographical errors in this article:

The 1st typo is in the final paragraph of the Introduction, here:

Original text: We compared changes in obesity prevalence in NYC to corresponding changes at the national level using data from NHANES 2003–2004 and 2011–2012.

New text: We compared changes in obesity prevalence in NYC to corresponding changes at the national level using data from NHANES 2001–2004 and 2011–2014.

The 2nd typo in the “Study Sample” sub-section of the Methods, here:

Original text: To obtain national estimates of obesity change, we used data from NHANES 2003–2004 and 2011–2012 [26], with a sample size of 10,927 and 7408, respectively, after excluding those without valid height and weight measurements.

New text: To obtain national estimates of obesity change, we used data from NHANES 2001–2004 and 2011–2014 [26], with a sample size of 10,927 and 7408, respectively, after excluding those without valid height and weight measurements.
