Primary versus proxy respondents : comparability of questionnaire data on alcohol consumption.
Questionnaire data on alcohol consumption obtained from primary respondents participating in a community-based case-control study of coronary heart disease were compared with similar data obtained from their next of kin.
The primary respondents were men and women aged 25-64 years who were a representative sample of myocardial infarction cases (n=58) and controls (n=456) from the case-control study.
The study was conducted in Auckland, New Zealand between 1986 and 1988.
When alcohol drinking frequency was collapsed into five categories, exact agreement between primary respondents and next of kin was 64% for cases and 62% for controls.
Agreement within one category (plus or minus) was 89% for both cases and controls.
