Under the heading ‘What Did the Researchers Do and Find?’ the text should read “However, significantly more girls in the intervention arm (11.2%), self-reported a pregnancy by age 18 than in the control arm (7.2%)” instead of “However, significantly more girls in the intervention arm (11.2%), self-reported a pregnancy by age 18 than in the intervention arm (7.2%)”.
