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.
