The validity of a short questionnaire on fertility problems was tested on a group of 151 moderately educated women who had participated in a prospective study on early pregnancy failure some years before.
Part of this group was approached by a personal interview, another part by telephone interviews and a third part was sent a questionnaire by mail.
Reliability was tested on another population of 89 women with at least one child.
The questionnaire was presented to these women twice with an interval of 3-5 weeks.
The validity study showed no systematic errors for either of the approaches.
Random errors were fairly large except for the personal interviews.
