Export citation

A drafting error has been found in this paper by Hall and Friel (Reference Hall and Friel2011). The projections reported in the paper were generated using the predict function for GAM models in the R package mgcv and not as referenced in the paper by Clements et al. (2005). The sentence at the top of page 22 should read: ‘Model projections are based on extrapolating the smooth functions using the predict function for GAM models in the R package mgcv (see next paragraph for details) and evaluating at the required values of age, period and cohort.’
