Correction to Table S1

The earlier published version of this paper included a supplementary Table 1 in which the estimated had been calculated on those showing endorsement of positive and negative items, and including in the ‘0’ category those who were uncertain only; rather than if they also were reluctant to answer those questions. Both these latter groups were actually included in the 0 category for the cluster analysis, which has the effect of biasing towards non-significant findings; and so this affected the unweighted and weighted estimates, but does not change the main analyses or conclusion. We are in correspondence with the PLOS ONE team to upload a new Supplementary Table 1.

Table 1 shows weighted response rates for each of the demographic, psychosocial and health characteristics. The weighted data representative of the population show a sample composed mostly of the 26–35 year age group, who are mostly employed and born in the UK, living in London; for the majority, religion was reported as very important in their daily lives, a point supported [by] at least weekly mosque attendance.

Group 1 showed the most condemnation of violent protest and terrorism. Group 1 was more likely (compared with group 2) to include people unavailable for work (mostly women who were looking after the home) and migrants born outside of the UK who would therefore have migrated to the UK; Group 1 compared with 2, reported a greater number of social contacts, lower social capital, and marginally more depressive symptoms. In univariable analyses, fewer people in groups 1 were unemployed, compared with group 2. [These] findings were not sustained in multivariable analyses.
