  1. Mortality and cancer rates in nonrespondents to a prospective study of older women : 5-year follow-up.

    Article - En anglais

    Most studies are unable to follow nonrespondents prospectively to determine whether their disease rates are comparable with those of the respondents.

    The authors followed respondents and nonrespondents to a mailed questionnaire, sent to a random sample of Iowa women aged 55-69 years in 1986 (total sample, 98,029 ; 43% response), to characterize 5-year mortality rates for myocardial infarction and all causes, and attack rates for breast, endometrial, colon, lung, and all-site cancers.

    Compared with respondents, nonrespondents had higher myocardial infarction (1.47 vs. 0.93 per 1,000 personyears) and all-cause (12.32 vs. 7.89 per 1,000 person-years) mortality.
