Erratum

Erratum to: Eur J Epidemiol (2010) 25:581–592 DOI 10.1007/s10654-010-9477-x

In the European Journal of Epidemiology 25(8) a printing error occurred in the manuscript concerning the unit of particle number concentration. The correct summary statistics of particle number concentrations (PN) given in the text and in Table 2, p. 584 is 104/l instead of 104/ml. Please find the revised Table 2. Since effect estimates of particle number were given per percent increase, results of the regression models in the text, tables and figures are correct as printed in the original publication.
