Can men be trusted ? A comparison of pregnancy histories reported by husbands and wives.
Agreement between pregnancies and pregnancy outcomes reported by husbands and wives was assessed in a sample of 857 couples interviewed between June 1989 and July 1990.
The respondents were men employed in a semiconductor manufacturing plant in Burlington, Vermont, and their wives.
The wive's reports were used as the standard against which the husbands'reproductive histories were evaluated.
Measures included sensitivity, specificity, and percentage of agreement.
Reports were considered to be congruent if an outcome reported by the husband agreed with the outcome reported by the wife within a period of +-6 months.
