In the paper “Development of a Tool to Identify Poverty in a Family Practice Setting: A Pilot Study” [1], two different specificity values were provided in the paper for the study question “Do you [ever] have difficulty making ends meet at the end of the month?” The correct values for this question are a sensitivity 98%; specificity 40%; OR 32.3, 95% CI 5.4–191.5. The specificity was incorrectly reported as 60% in the abstract and in page 2.
