Errata: Vol. 61, No. 17
In the report, "Sexual Experience and Contraceptive Use Among Female Teens — United States, 1995, 2002, and 2006–2010," the analysis included some respondents who were using contraception but did not have sex during the interview month. Only respondents who had sex during the interview month should have been included. When limiting the analysis to respondents aged 15–19 years who had sex during the interview month, highly effective contraceptive use did not change significantly from 1995 (48.1% [95% confidence interval = 42.8%–53.4%]) to 2006–2010 (51.8% [95% confidence interval = 45.6%–57.9%]).
In addition, on page 300, the first sentence of the second paragraph of the Editorial Note should have cited reference 6, as follows: "An earlier study (6) reported that the proportion of female teens who never have had sex is now comparable across racial/ethnic groups, largely because of proportionately larger increases in delayed sexual debut observed since 1995 among black teens and Hispanic teens compared with white teens."
