Abstract

In the original article, there was an error. Unfortunately, some important text in the discussion was misplaced. A correction has been made to Discussion, “Changes Vary Between Subgroups,” paragraph one: The original text, “Very-high distress in women aged 55–64 has doubled this century (from 3.5 to 7.2%) and combined high/very-high distress has increased by 50% (12.4–18.7%), both of which are highly significant findings. Very-high distress also increased in males, significantly in those aged 25–34 years. Overall, distress was greatest in women aged 18–24 years during all years; 8.0% for very-high levels and 22.1% for combined high/very-high in 2017/18. (2.1–4.0%), but overall is a more tentative finding since a significant increase did not extend to the combined high/very-high distress metric (10.6–11.5%).” has been corrected to: “Very-high distress in women aged 55–64 has doubled this century (from 3.5 to 7.2%) and combined high/very-high distress has increased by 50% (12.4–18.7%), both of which are highly significant findings.

The original article has been updated.
