Abstract

In the article "Affective Reactivity to Daily Stress and 20-Year Mortality Risk in Adults With Chronic Illness: Findings From the National Study of Daily Experiences" by Jessica J. Chiang, Nicholas A. Turiano, Daniel K. Mroczek, and Gregory E. Miller (Health Psychology, 2018, Vol. 37, No. 2, pp. 170-178, http://dx.doi.org/10.1037/hea0000567), affect each day was incorrectly reported as being assessed on a 5-point scale that ranged from 0 (none of the time) to 4 (all of the time). The correct range of the scale is from 1 (none of the time) to 5 (all of the time). In addition, the signs of two correlations displayed in Table 2 were incorrect. The reported -.67 correlation between negative affective reactivity and negative affect on nonstressor days should have been .67, indicating a positive association. Similarly, the reported .43 correlation between negative affective reactivity and positive affect on nonstressor days should have been43, indicating a negative association.
