In the Top 100 Business and Economic Outlook published Monday, Independence Blue Cross was omitted from the list of 100 biggest nongovernmental employers due to a miscommunication from the company. It had 8,934 employees in the region as of October, which ranks it No. 18 and pushes down the rankings of others below it.

_ Also, Internet Capital Group Inc. was erroneously omitted from the list of 100 local companies with best stock-and-dividend return since 2004. Its 86 percent return ranks it No. 24 and pushes down the rankings of others below it.

_ Also, a story on Philadelphia's flourishing service firms did not identify Unisys Corp.'s main business. It provides computer services and servers.

_ A profile of Beverly Lybrand misstated her title and one family detail. Lybrand is senior vice president at Merck & Co. Inc. and general manager for adolescent and adult vaccines at Merck Vaccines and Infectious Diseases. She is one of six siblings. *
