A Corrigendum on
Risks for Child Cognitive Development in Rural Contexts

by Hermida, M. J., Shalom, D. E., Segretin, M. S., Goldin, A. P., Abril, M. C., Lipina, S. J., et al. (2019). Front. Psychol. 9:2735. doi: 10.3389/fpsyg.2018.02735

In the original article, there were mistakes in Tables 2, 3, 4, and 6 as published.

There were three mistakes in Table 2. Firstly, column “Media” should be column “Mean.” Secondly, in reference 6 (footnote) “subsides” should be “subsidies.” Thirdly, in row “Frequency of mother child play (by week),” column “Urban/Mean” it says 2.14 and it should say 5.14.

There were two mistakes in Table 3. In row “Incubator/yes,” column “Urban/valid percentage,” it says 1.5 and it should say 10.5. Also, in row “Potential Nervous System conditions: No,” column “Rural/ Valid percentage,” it says 7.2 and it should say 70.2.

There were four mistakes in Table 4. Firstly, in rows “0–3 switchs,” “4–5 switchs,” and “6 switchs,” the word “switchs” should be “switches.” Additionally, in row “Learning,” column “Urban/mean,” it says 2.87 and it should say 20.87.

Finally, there were two mistakes in Table 6. In row “Number of siblings,” column “F,” it says 2.151 and it should say 20.151. Also, in row “Past preschool attendance,” column “F,” it says 5.798 and it should say 50.798.

The corrected Tables 2, 3, 4, and 6 appear below.


Table 2. Descriptive statistic of the continuous variables obtained from parents' interviews in urban and rural contexts.


Table 3. Descriptive statistic of the nominal variables obtained from parents' interviews in urban and rural contexts.


Table 4. Descriptive statistics of cognitive variables by context and UBN indicators.


Table 6. Significant results of ANOVAs: environmental and individual variables that differ by context.
