6 Sep 2005 - Attributable fractions reported in Ridolfo and Stevenson 2001 were used to calculate the numbers of cancers attributable to smoking and alcohol presented in Cancer in Australia 1999, Cancer in Australia 2000 and Cancer in Australia 2001. However, the fractions for cancers attributable to smoking presented in table 2 (page 18 of the 1999 report, page 19 of the 2000 report and page 17 of the 2001 report) were inadvertently not updated in the printed versions of these reports and still reflect earlier fractions reported by English et al. 1995.
