It was highlighted that the original article [1] contained the below errors in Tables 2, 3 and 4 and in the legends of Tables 3 and 4. This Correction article shows the correct Tables and legends.

  1. 1)

    In Table 2, for Stage I – SCSTs the number for “uninsured” and “privately insured” was swapped. The distribution should be uninsured = 20 (8%); privately insured = 169 (65%)

  2. 2)

    In Table 3, multivariable HR for Uninsured should read HR 2.31, 95% CI 2.01–2.66. Additionally, Urban/Rural should read HR 1.13, 95% CI 1.00–1.29. Among those with Stage II/III tumors, for percent of individuals in the patient’s ZIP code without a high school diploma, the less than 7% group should read HR 0.67, 95% CI 0.52–0.88. In Table 4, for stage II/III, HR for income >$63 k should read HR 0.79, 95% CI 0.61–1.02. Additionally, for stage II/III, for percent of individuals in the patient’s ZIP code without a high school diploma, the less than 7% group should read HR 0.67, 95% CI 0.52–0.88.

  3. 3)

    In Table 4, for stage II/III, HR for income >$63 k should read HR 0.79, 95% CI 0.61–1.02. Additionally, for stage II/III, for percent of individuals in the patient’s ZIP code without a high school diploma, the less than 7% group should read HR 0.67, 95% CI 0.52–0.88.

  4. 4)

    Table legend corrections: For Table 3, the definition of the abbreviation “IQR” is unnecessary. Table 4 was missing the following - CI = Confidence interval, GCTs = Germ cell tumors, HR = Hazard ratio, SCSTs = Sex cord stromal tumors, *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001

Table 2 Stage-specific comparison of the sociodemographic and clinical characteristics of patients with SCSTs versus GCTs
Table 3 Univariable and multivariable Cox proportional hazards regression analysis on the association between sociodemographic and clinical characteristics and mortality of the overall cohort
Table 4 Multivariable Cox proportional hazards regression analysis on the association between sociodemographic and clinical characteristics and mortality by stage
