    Article - En anglais

    The level of effort required to generate neighborhood controls for a statewide matched case-control study of cervical cancer was investigated, with the aim of identifying hard-to-reach demographic subgroups.

    Cross reference telephone directories were used to identify households on the same street as the case.

    Letters were then sent to the households, followed by'phone calls.

    A total of 2920 households were contacted to obtain 147 controls.

    Overall, 63.6% of age-eligible contacts participated in the study.

    In 49.3% of all households the major reason for not obtaining a control was « no age-eligible woman ».
