Assessment of reporting consistency in a case-control study of spontaneous abortions.
Because of concern about differential reporting of water consumption in regions with publicized water contamination, interviews included detailed questions about consumption of tap water and bottled water during pregnancy, as well as other exposures.
Most factors such as caffeine consumption, cigarette smoking, employment, and pregnancy history were consistently reported between interviews and did not appear to be subject to differential reporting between cases and controls.
When variables were examined by univariate analysis, controls deleted reports of tap water consumption more often than did cases.
