This corrigendum aims to correct errors detected in the outputs of the Extended Data Tables from our article Scientific Reports 6, 20552 (2016). A mistake occurred due to a failure in the conversion of the variable “species” from integer to a categorical (factor) variable. We have updated the tables with ‘species’ as a factor (Extended Data Tables below). It is important to state that the essence of our results and conclusions do not change from those presented in the article.
Additionally, we took opportunity of this corrigendum to explore the variation in the group composition (party size) of humans that suffered large carnivore attack over time and across species. We simplified our response categorical variable ‘group composition’ into two categories, i.e., ‘victim alone’ and ‘victim in a party’ (binary coded variable). We conducted this analysis using a two-level categorical approach (binomial family in R) instead of using the previous multinomial approach. This change does not affect the results or conclusions of our analysis, as reported in the article, but is a simplification.
