# Errata: Vol. 43, No. 50

In the article "State-Specific Trends Among Women Who Did Not Receive Prenatal Care -- United States, 1980-1992," on page 939, in the second sentence of the third paragraph, the maximum value in 1992 declined to 5.7%, rather than 4.8%. The fourth paragraph should read: "For 1980-1981, the percentage of women who did not receive prenatal care ranged from 0.18% (Vermont) to 3.64% (New York) Table_1; for 1991-1992, the percentages ranged from 0.30% (Rhode Island) to 6.07% (District of Columbia). When compared with 1980-1981, during 1991-1992 the percentage of women who did not receive prenatal care declined in nine states (Florida, Kentucky, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Dakota, and Utah) and increased in 41 states and the District of Columbia; in eight states (Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Vermont, and Wisconsin) and the District of Columbia, the increase was greater than 100%."

On page 940, the fourth sentence in the second paragraph should read, "For example, the comparison of data for 1980-1981 with 1991-1992 demonstrated slight decreases in the percentage of women who did not receive prenatal care in nine states and substantial increases in eight states and the District of Columbia." On page 941, the state-specific percentages were incorrect for several states. The following table contains the corrected percentages and replaces Table_1.
