Correction to: Qual Life Res  https://doi.org/10.1007/s11136-017-1684-4

In the original publication of the article, the right number of participants included in the analysis should be 2107 and not 2118 as written in the paper. The flow-chart and corrected SF-36 scores for the 2015 data set for this article should have appeared as follows: Fig. 1 and Table 3. These changes did not influence the results. The authors would like to apologize for any inconvenience caused.
