  1. Fulltext. Hysterectomy use : the correspondance between self-reports and hospital records.

    Article - En anglais


    Studies of the relationship between hysterectomy use and sociodemographic factors tend to use self-reported data.

    In the current study, data were collected from a representative sample of US women who have been prospectively followed since 1971.

    Hysterectomy status was obtained by self-report and from hospital records.

    Although these two measures of hysterectomy were highly related, more women reported hysterectomy than could be confirmed by hospital records.
