Erratum: Vol. 48, Nos. 51 & 52

In the printed copy and .pdf file of Table 1 of "Abortion Surveillance: Preliminary Analysis--United States, 1997," on pages 1172-3, in the column of data for 1997, "Weeks' gestation," the incorrect numbers of 8.1 and 9.6 for 7 and 8 weeks, respectively, appear. The correct numbers are 18.1 and 19.6, respectively. In the .htm file of Table 1, the footnote incorrectly stated that the number of reported abortions performed as medical (nonsurgical) was 2983. The correct number is 2988 abortions.
