  1. Utility of the National Death Index for ascertainment of mortality among cancer prevention study II participants.

    Article - En anglais

    This paper reports the results of testing and using the National Death Index to ascertain vital status in the American Cancer Society's prospective cohort study, Cancer Prevention Study II.

    This cohort of over one million men and women, enrolled by volunteers in 1982, is one of the largest ever to be linked with the National Death Index.

    In a linkage of over 15,000 persons whose vital status through 1988 had been traced through manual follow-up, 93% of all known deaths were ascertained.

    Sensitivity varied by demographic factors (race, sex) and availability of identifying information (Social Security number, middle initial).
