Following the publication of this article [1], the authors reported a typesetting error in Table 1 that caused the columns of the table to be ordered incorrectly, and a typographical error in a sentence in the Conclusions section.

The incorrect Table 1 was published as:

Table 1 Provincial and national completeness estimates (2001 – 2010)

The correct Table 1 should be:

Table 1 Provincial and national completeness estimates (2001 – 2010)

In the Conclusion section the incorrect sentence was:

“Galapagos has a low percentage of garbage codes (high quality) and also a low and also a low completeness estimate.”

It should say:

“Galapagos has a low percentage of garbage codes (high quality) and also a low completeness estimate.”

The original article has been corrected. The publisher apologizes to the readers and the authors for any inconvenience caused by these errors.
