Upgraded UV and IR data were taken of the planetary nebula NGC 6853 in the same region as previous optical data to improve the data base on various ionized species in the nebula. The spectral range 1400-9600 A was scanned, and good agreement was obtained between UV and optical ionization abundance data, although the 4267 A C II line yielded a C(2+) abundance larger than indicated by the UV data. The discrepancy concentrated around the central star. Ionization abundances were determined for He, O, N, NC, C, Ar, and S relative to H, and the causes of discrepancies in the abundances compared to those of previous investigators are discussed. It is noted that, as in the planetary nebula NGC 6720, lighter element abundances are higher than solar values, which suggests mixing of processed materials in the envelope of the two nebulae.
