Abstract

Epidemiologic studies commonly use personal interviews or self-administered questionnaires as the sole source of exposure information. Comparatively little attention has been paid to the reliability and validity of exposure data obtained by these methods, particularly as they relate to accuracy
of recall. Accuracy of recall can be evaluated by comparing questionnairederived data with that obtained from another presumably more accurate source considered to be the standard.
