Errata: Vol. 55, No. 26

In the report, "Homicides and Suicides --- National Violent Death Reporting System, United States, 2003--2004," the following errors occurred.

On page 723, in the first column, the first through fifth complete sentences should read as follows: "The most frequently reported mental health diagnoses were depression (81.3%), bipolar disorder (9.9%), and schizophrenia (3.3%) in 2004. Roughly half of victims were described by family or friends as being depressed before the time of death. Problems with a current or former intimate partner contributed to 27.9% of suicides. Physical health problems, most commonly in older adults, contributed to approximately 22.1% of the suicides. Nearly 17.9% of suicide victims had made previous attempts, and 16.5% had alcohol dependence problems."

On page 723, in the second column, the fourth sentence should read as follows: "In 78.7% of these cases, suspects were known to victims, and 20.0% of homicides were directly associated with intimate partner conflict (i.e., one in which an intimate partner killed another partner)."
