The article unfortunately contained no data on global or “crude” rates of hip fractures in Argentina. The mean annual rates of hip fractures are 286/100,000 for women and 118/100,000 for men aged above 50 years, yielding a 2.42:1 F/M ratio. These figures supersede the rate of 488/100,000 inhabitants aged above 50 years (SD ± 86) erroneously appearing in the Abstract and on the second page of the article (right-hand column, second line of section entitled “Hip fractures”). The authors regret their error.
