Cost efficient sampling design for quality control of a birth defects registry.
Quality control studies of registries are frequently conducted.
We employed a cost effective sampling scheme for assessing the quality of case identification and abstracting in one birth defects registry.
The general sampling method was a stratified two-stage design, and the optimal sample size for each stratum was chosen to minimize cost, which was defined as time for data collection.
The resulting sample sizes depended on the variability in the number of abstracts between and within data collection facilities, and the amount of time needed to complete each data collection step.
