Teenage pregnancy rates: high compared with where and when?

The text and Table 1 of this paper (March 2004 JRSM1) give an incorrect figure for the percentage change in birth rate to 15-19-year-olds between 1980 and 1995. The correct figure for England and Wales is 31%, rather than 56%. Please contact the authors for the revised table. These corrections do not affect the conclusion of the paper that the rate of pregnancy in teenagers/adolescents in England and Wales comes into the ‘moderate’ category.
