Under the heading entitled Beer and Wine on page 296, the statistic should have read "In 1993, 3137 young people who were 16 to 24 years of age died in alcohol-related motor vehicle crashes."
Also, on page 297, Reference 19 should be changed to the following: National Center for Statistics and Analysis. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
