Correlates of postmenopausal estrogen use and trends through the 1980s in two southeastern New England communities.
Correlates and prevalence of current postmenopausal estrogen use were examined in two southeastern New England communities for the period 1981 through 1990.
Data were obtained from five biennial cross-sectional household health surveys, with current use of postmenopausal estrogen determined by inspection of medication bottles.
Analysis included 3,279 women aged 40-64 years, of whom 2,215 (67.6%) were postmenopausal.
The prevalence of estrogen use among all postmenopausal women increased from 5.3% (95% confidence interval (CI) 3.2-7.4) in 1981 -1982 to 10.9% (95% CI 7.5-14.4) in 1989-1990.
