    Article - En anglais

    Proxy respondents were interviewed for 96 decedents in an occupational cohort.

    A second respondent was interviewed for 59 decedents.

    Medical records were reviewed to validate questionnaire information.

    The percentage of respondents who answered « don't know »'(non-response) to questions about medical condition ranged from 5% (cancer and heart disease) to 17% (ulcers).

    Non-response rates were lowest among spouses, intermediate among children, parents, and siblings, and highest among other relatives and friends.

    Among 41-55 pairs, depending on the condition, agreement between paired respondents was excellent (k>0.75) for ulcers, cancer, diabetes, and lung disease.
