    Fulltext.

    To assess recall of childhood socioeconomic position for public health research, the authors conducted a cross-sectional study of 352 adult women twin pairs enrolled in Examination II of the Kaiser Permanente Women Twins Study carried out in 1989-1990 in Oakland, California.

    Among twin pairs, 91% (95% confidence interval (Cl) 89-94%) agreed on their father's educational level and 81% (95% Cl 77-85%) on their childhood social class.

    Recall did not differ by adult socioeconomic position, zygosity, race/ethnicity, or age.

    Thus, epidemiologic studies can validly use retrospective data on childhood socioeconomic position to study its relation to adult health status.
