  1. Reliability of reported sunburn history in a case-control study of cutaneous malignant melanoma.

    Article - En anglais

    Reliability of reported sunburn history was assessed.

    Fifty cases and 50 controls were randomly selected from a population-based case-control study of skin examination practices and lethal melanoma in Connecticut.

    Eighty-two percent of these participants were interviewed from January 15,1987, to May 15,1989, and reinterviewed in 1990.

    The kappa coefficients ranged between 0.37 and 0.57 ; the intraclass correlation coefficients were similar and ranged between 0.34 and 0.69.

    There were no significant differences found by case-control status or sex for any variables, and the degree of disagreement was similar for cases and controls and could be considered free of recall bias.
