  1. Effect of recall on reporting of at-work injuries.

    Article - En anglais

    Difficulty with recall of injuries can result in underestimates of injury incidence and bias in risk estimates in surveys based on self-reports.

    This study examined the effect of recall on estimates of at-work injury obtained from the 1988 Occupational Health Supplement of the National Health Interview Survey, which used a 12-month reference period for injury reporting.

    Estimates of annual injury incidence were obtained from recall intervals of increasing time between injury date and interview date.

    A linear model was fitted to these data to estimate the incidence rate expected if all respondents had been interviewed within 4 weeks of injury.

    The incidence rate for all at-work injuries adjusted for recall was 32 percent higher than the unadjusted rate.

    The percent increase in the estimates differed among demographic groups and by injury severity.

    Rate ratios comparing risk of injury between some demographic groups were also affected by adjustment for recall.

    A 12-month or longer reference period is frequently used in injury surveys in order to obtain an adequate number of injuries for analysis.

    A shorter reference period is desirable to provide more accurate estimates ; however this necessitates increasing the size of the sample used in the survey.

    This increased cost must be balanced against the need for accurate information on injury.
