Because of errors in the original report, yesterday's story and accompanying chart about the D.C. Kids Count Collaborative's report on the quality of life for District children gave incorrect data on the number of pediatric AIDS cases in the city.
The number of new AIDS cases did not rise drastically last year. The number of cases among children 12 and younger rose from 157 in 1997 to 168 in 1998, and AIDS cases increased from 40 to 47 among youngsters 13 to 19 years old.
The numbers for 1998 AIDS cases used in the article and the chart are the cumulative numbers of AIDS cases for the Washington region, not just the District.
An incorrect date was listed for four items in the This Week community events calendar in yesterday's Virginia Weeklies, and one of the items gave an incorrect sponsor and phone number for the event.

"Smokey Joe's Cafe" will be performed Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at the Montgomery College Performing Arts Center in Rockville. The Sunday evening time is incorrect in today's Weekend section, which was printed in advance.
A July 19 Metro story about a D.C. woman's struggle to feed several children may have indicated that her 11-year-old granddaughter, Tessa West, lived with her. Although Tessa often stays with her grandmother, the girl lives with her father.
