Mammography rates reported by women in the National Health Interview Surveys of 1990 and 1987 are examined.
Why this screening modality is not more frequently used is explored.
Data from the 1987 and 1990 National Health Interview Surveys, conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics, are cross-tabulated and compared.
In 1987, approximately 17% of women over 40 years of age reported having had a screening mammogram in the previous year.
In 1990, the rate doubled.
Race declined in importance; income and education remained strong, positive predictors of screening.
