Proxy respondents in reproductive research : a comparison of self- and patner-reported data.
The concordance, sensitivity, and specificity of proxy reports about partners' occupation, smoking, and drinking were examined in relation to self-reports.
Overall, private patients provided better proxy data than did clinic patients, and women provided better data than did men.
No consistent effects on the quality of proxy reports were found in relation to age, level of education, marital status, or length of cohabitation.
