Abstract
Progress is reviewed of available data for evaluation of atomic masses since the 1995 one. Many more direct mass measurements have become available, especially in the region of proton-rich nuclides. The number of alpha- and, especially, proton-decay data increased considerably. In the region of superhigh mass numbers, many very interesting new observations were made.
