A section of Table 1 is presented incorrectly in the published article as:

 Age 60–64 −1.037 < 0.0001 0.354 −5.309 < 0.0001 0.005 −2.546 < 0.0001 0.078
 Woman −0.233 < 0.0001 0.792 −0.284 < 0.0001 0.752 −0.277 < 0.0001 0.758

The corrected presentation of this section is:

 Age 60–64 −1.037 < 0.0001 0.354 −5.309 < 0.0001 0.005 −2.546 < 0.0001 0.078

The footnote of Table 2 in the published article currently reads:

  • Predicted for an individual with secondary education of 2 years, male with no children, no partner, and Stockholm county.

The footnote of Table 2 should instead read:

  • Number of years until a certain percent of the Iraqi immigrants have wage income exceeding 2 PBB. Secondary education 2 years, male with children, no partner, and Stockholm county.

A part of the fourth paragraph of section ‘6 Modelling the relationship between age and getting a foothold in the Swedish labor market’ in the published article currently reads:

  • 5 and 10 years until half have done so. The corresponding number of years for those aged 45–49 is between 4 and 9 and 8–20 respectively. It is only in the 1998 arrival cohort that half of all persons aged 50–54 are predicted to gain a foothold before the general retirement age.

This should instead read:

  • 6 and 10 years until half have done so. The corresponding number of years for those aged 45–49 is between 4 and 9 and 8–17 respectively. It is only in the 1998 arrival cohort that half of all persons aged 45–49 are predicted to gain a foothold before the general retirement age.

A sentence in the second paragraph of section ‘7 Conclusions’ in the published article currently reads:

  • We have used registry information on all immigrants to Sweden and followed persons over time, concentrating on the cohorts that arrived in 1990, 1994, 1998, and 2001, and distinguished between people born in high-, middle-, and low-income countries.

This should instead read:

  • We have used registry information on all immigrants to Sweden and followed persons over time, concentrating on the cohorts that arrived in 1990, 1994, 1998, and 2002, and distinguished between people born in high-, middle-, and low-income countries.
