Erratum: Vol. 43, No. 40

In "Adult Blood Lead Epidemiology and Surveillance -- United States, Second Quarter, 1994," on page 741, the first sentence of the second paragraph should read "The cumulative number of BLL reports for the first and second quarters of 1994 increased 48% over the comparable time period for 1993 (Table_1)." On pages 741- 742, the last sentence of the third paragraph should be deleted. The following table contains the corrected numbers and footnotes and replaces Table 1 on page 742.

Note: To print large tables and graphs users may have to change their printer settings to landscape and use a small font size.
