  1. Comparability of a computer-assisted versus written method for collecting health behavior information from adolescent patients.

    Article - En anglais

    Purpose 

    To investigate the comparability of health behavior data obtained from adolescents via notebook computer versus those obtained via written questionnaire.

    Methods 

    We interviewed adolescent patients (ages 13-20 years) receiving services at community adolescent health clinics.

    Participants anonymously completed either a computer-assisted self-interview (CASI) or a self-administered questionnaire (SAQ), both assessing health-protective behaviors, substance use (i.e., tobacco, alcohol, marijuana) and sexual behaviors.

    From a pool of 671 adolescent participants (348 completing CASI, 323 completing SAQ), we matched 194 SAQ participants with 194 CASI participants on the basis of gender and race.

    We could not match individually on the basis of age, but were able to match each gender-race subgroup by mean age.

    Results 

    Across the majority of health behaviors (i.e., all health-protective behaviors, tobacco use, sexual behaviors), mode of administration made no significant difference in the reporting of information by adolescents.

    However, girls reported a greater frequency of alcohol use and marijuana use on CASI than on SAQ, whereas boys reported a lower frequency of alcohol use and marijuana use on CASI than on SAQ.

    Conclusions 

    The findings of this study suggest that there may be gender-related difference between modes of anonymous collection of specific adolescent health behaviors such as alcohol and marijuana use. (...)
