Reliability of environmental and occupational exposure data provided by surrogate respondents in a case-control study of Parkinson's disease.
This study used data provided by 40 non-demented Parkinson's disease patients and 101 community controls, and by their 110 spouses and 31 adult children to assess the reliability of surrogate-provided rural environmental and occupational exposure information on the index subjects.
The level of overall raw agreement between the index subjects and the spouse or adult child surrogates varied from 50.0 to 100.0% for the case-surrogate group and from 80.6 to 96.0% for the control-surrogate group.
We did not detect significant differences in overall raw agreement between the case-surrogate and control-surrogate groups or between the spouse-surrogate and adult child-surrogate groups, for any of the variables studied.
