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.
