For the record

 Correction: A story in Wednesday’s Metro section about a revised Department of Public Health estimate for 2014 opioid-related deaths gave incorrect percentages of increase over deaths in 2012 and 2013. The new estimate of 1,256 deaths represents an increase of 88 percent over the total in 2012, and 34 percent over 2013.
