The purpose of the study was to determine the health risks of swimming at ocean beaches in Sydney, Australia.
From people attending 12 Sydney beaches in the period from december 5,1989 to february 26,1990, we recruited a cohort of 8413 adults who agreed to participate in this study.
Of these, 4424 were exclused either because they had been swimming in the previous 5 days or because they reported a current illness.
Of the remainder, 2839 successfully completed a follow-up telephone interview conducted within 10 days after recruitement.
