There is an error in the fifth sentence of the second paragraph under the sub-subheading Subjective Well-Being, within the subheading Measures in the Methods section. This sentence should read as follows:

Life satisfaction was measured with a five-item scale in which participants rated their life overall, work situation, health, relationship with spouse (or partner), and relationship with children on a scale from 0 (worst possible) to 10 (best possible) [84]. The internal consistency of this scale was .67 in MIDUS I and .64 in MIDUS II (University of Wisconsin Institute on Aging, 2010 and 2009).
