An earlier version of this Fact sheet gave the following incorrect figures on page 23: ‘According to the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 [2], lack of physical activity in Germany is behind 22.7% of coronary heart disease, 6.3% of stroke, 2.3% of diabetes mellitus, 3.3% of colorectal cancer and 2.0% of breast cancer deaths.’ These figures incorrectly reported the proportion of overall mortality due to the diseases mentioned, irrespective of physical activity. The correct sentence reads: ‘According to the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 [2], lack of physical activity in Germany is behind 12.3% of coronary heart disease, 7.6% of stroke, 3.1% of diabetes mellitus, 3.4% of colorectal cancer and 1.8% of breast cancer deaths.’
