An assessment of the usefulness of demographic data provided by surrogate respondents in a case-control study of Parkinson's disease.
This study, based upon data from 40 non-demented Parkinson's disease cases and 101 community controls, and similar data provided by either the spouse (n=110) or an adult child (n=31) of each index subject, attempted to assess the usefulness of various demographic data provided by the surrogate respondents for the index subjects.
The data were collected by personal interview using a structured questionnaire specifically developed for this study.
Ninety-one percent of the index subjects and their surrogates provided information on the annual family income and 98% provided other demographic information.
