Erratum: Vol. 46, No. 48

In the report, "Use of Clinical Preventive Services by Medicare Beneficiaries Aged greater than or equal to 65 Years -- United States, 1995," on page 1139, the percentages in the first sentence of the first paragraph were incorrect. The sentence should read: "The percentage of women aged greater than or equal to 65 years who had received a mammogram during the 2 years preceding the survey ranged from 52.8% (95% CI=44.2%-61.3%) (New Jersey) to 80.8% (95% CI=69.4%-92.2%) (Alaska) (median: 65.5%), and prevalences did not vary by region."

In the same report, in Table 1 on pages 1140-1, the mammography prevalence estimates and confidence intervals were incorrect. Following is the corrected table (Table_1).

   insurance, prepaid plans such as HMOs {health-maintenance organizations}, or government plans such as Medicare?" A "yes"
   response was used as a proxy for Medicare coverage.
 + Vaccination received during the 12 months preceding the survey.
 & Vaccination received during their lifetime.
 @ Service received during the previous 2 years.
** Service received during the previous 3 years. Excludes women with no uterine cervix.
++ Confidence interval.
&& Female respondents from California were excluded from these estimates because of the different wording of the survey questions
   in that state.
