  1. Reliability of interviewer ans subject assessments of nevus counts in a study of melanoma.

    Article - En anglais

    Several types of data are presented concerning the reliability of counting or estimating the density of nevi (moles), a major risk factor for melanoma, using methods typically employed in epidemiologic studies.

    First, interviewer-derived counts of nevi on the arm produced estimates of inter-observer, inter-subject, temporal and random variability, and their interactions.

    Second, interviewer-derived arm counts and respondent self-reports of whole body nevus density were compared.

    Finally, we compared male and female cases and controls with respect to their reported rates of having a relative with a malignant mole.
