Due to a reporting error, statistics on Project Independence in the Sunday edition of The Anne Arundel County Sun were incorrect. Of 584 county participants in 1989-90, 219 graduated and 137 found jobs. Of the graduating class, 63 percent found jobs.

Of the state's 13,689participants, 2,891 graduated and 2,236 were placed. Of the graduating class, 77 percent found jobs.

Many of the rest still are in the program, Project Independence officials said.

In addition, a graduate who was identified as working at the Department of Housing and Community Development no longer works there. LaVerne Wright now works for the Planning Action Committee.

The Anne Arundel County Sun regrets the errors.
